Hello, and happy Friday, friends! Have you heard about the Moda Sew Along that is beginning today?! Moda Fabrics is sharing a fun quilt block PDF to use with Honeybuns and 1 ½″ strips. And I’ve filmed a short video to show you exactly how to make these fun blocks (bet you can’t make just one)! I hope you’ll enjoy today’s Scrappy Honeybun Quilt Block Tutorial.
Scrappy Honeybun Quilt Block Tutorial
As soon as I heard about this fun quilt along from Moda, I knew I was in. And then when I saw the fun pattern they created I hurried and started gathering fabrics. Not only do I have lots of left over honeybun strips, but I also have scraps that can be cut to the right size. I’ve even thought of trimming left over binding pieces to the proper size to get a good mix of fabrics. Right now my plan is to make a scrappy king-sized quilt with these fun blocks, alternating darks and lights in every block.

- For more ideas on quilts to make with Honeybuns, see my Honeybun Quilt Post here.
- If you need some Honeybuns to add to your stash, you can find them here.
- I made several of my blocks using more than two fabrics–and I love those blocks just as much if not more. Watch my video to see what I did with those blocks.
- Also, I share my pressing tips on the video to make it easier when sewing blocks together into rows.
- Finally, since I’m making a king-sized quilt I’ve decided that I’ll need to make at least 169 blocks for a 14 x 13 layout that will finish at 112″ x 104″. I may decide to make it a 14 x 14 layout after get a row assembled and try it out.
