Next week, I should receive the instructions for the last Moda block. Then I can put them all together and have a quilt. The quilt is busy, colorful and not one that I would intentionally make.
Block # 50 is a 12″ block It’s called Vintage and is designed by Sherri McConnell of a Quilting Life.
Quarter square triangles are easy to make with the Tucker Trimmer. Making 16 took a while, mainly because even though I organized the blocks in the proper orientation, I twisted them when I sewed. It led to a little un-sewing and re-sewing.
Block # 51 is a 6″ x 12″ block. It is called Power Star and is designed by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings. This one took a really long time to make. It had ninety six 1 1/4″ squares and a total of 141 very small pieces. The little squares made twelve 2″ x 1 1/4″ flying geese and eighteen 2″ x 2″ square in a square units. That’s a lot of little pieces for such a small block.
Before I receive the instructions for the last block I can complete two more quarters of the quilt. One quarter is already completed. I can also have the last quarter ready to insert block # 52. I plan to piece large pieces of the Japanese fabric for the backing and can have that done. The quilt will be ready to quilt in a few days.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
