Red and White Quilt Blocks



 My Red and White (and low-volume) Moda Building Blocks quilt has been a lot of fun to work on during the Christmas season. I first posted about this quilt here and here. It's been hard not to work on it more frequently, but I still have gifts to make!

This weekend I promised myself that if I checked a few things off of my list I could make a block for this quilt.

As you can tell...







 I couldn't stop with just one block. At first I was just going to make this block from Section B. But it went together pretty quickly...


  
So I made one more (since it was just straight line sewing of course).




But then I realized that by making the giant block remaining in that section I'd soon be able to complete Section B and then join it to section A. I'll share that finish soon, I'm sure...but that will probably have to be it until the rest of my gifts are sewn.

What about you...are you still working on gifts? 




Last thing...I'll be sharing this soon...made with Moda Candy squares of Fresh Cut by Basic Grey for Moda.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Done with gifts, they went in the mail today, back to other projects. First took a minute to clean my sewing area and put stuff away, it was turning into a disaster area!

Can't wait to see full on shots of your projects!

Your red and white quilt is going to be gorgeous. A red and white quilt is on my someday-to-do-list. I'm still working on Christmas gifts, but a couple more and I'll be finished as I'm just making small things this year.
