Happy Wednesday! My red and white Moda Building Blocks quilt is quilted, home, and bound! It has been such a fun journey to work on this quilt. I began it in the fall of 2014 knowing it was going to be a bit of a long-term project. It’s a little bit sad to have this finished, I so loved working on it!
You can find the Moda Building Blocks quilt pattern here. The quilt finishes up at 84″ x 96″ and is made from all Moda reds, whites, and off white prints from my stash. I’ve had some of these fabrics for several years!
I went back and forth with a few different ideas for the binding. In the end I went with the Moda Bella Christmas Red 9900 16. I’m really happy with that choice as it sets off the quilt beautifully.
The incredible machine quilting was done by Natalia Bonner of Piece N Quilt. (She has posted about her quilting here). I just love how she used so many different quilting designs and techniques in the different areas of the quilt.
I have so many favorite blocks in this quilt that it’s impossible to choose just one favorite.
The blocks range in size from small 6″ blocks which were a lot of fun to larger 36″ blocks which are just stunning in this quilt!
Love these straight lines and the feathers!!!
This block above was supposed to be made with just a couple of fabrics…but I love it made with several different ones.
I didn’t buy any extra fabric for this quilt until the very end. I made one of the largest blocks last and needed to get ½ yard of one of the prints…other than that it was completely from my scraps and my stash!
I love the swirls and bubbles…
And I also love the straight lines and angled lines!
I used a Moda Bella in white on the back, and I’m super happy I went with that, too. I love being able to see all of the quilting on the back…and it was sure fun to look at the back while I was hand stitching the binding!
Thanks so much for following along on this journey. It’s been too sunny outside to get a good picture of the whole quilt…but we’re supposed to have some cloudy days soon, and I’ll update this post with one more photo of the full quilt…I’ll let you know when I do that!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
