Did you follow along with the Moda Friendship Quilt Along? I followed along and printed and saved my favorite blocks to make a solids quilt. You see, my very first quilt was made with three solids: a sky blue, a grass green, and a bright white. The quilt was a Double Irish Chain from Eleanor Burns’ Quilt in a Day series. It was my older son’s favorite quilt, but I haven’t made a solids quilt since.
Here are my first three blocks made with Bella solids from the “Brights” bundle and a lime green Bella from my stash.
First I made one of the extra blocks from the quilt-along wrap-up post.
Next I made Aneela Hoey’s block.
And finally I made Julie Comstock’s block.
I’m excited to see how this quilt will turn out with a whole rainbow of Bella colors–
I’m posting about these blocks on the Moda Cutting Table blog today where I’ve listed the exact Bella color numbers if you would happen to need any for your stash!
I’ll be posting more about this quilt and including direct links to the blocks I make each week or two. Would anyone like to quilt along? Is three blocks every two weeks too much? Would three blocks a month be better? I’d love to hear your ideas–and what a fun parade it would be to have an entire post of solids sampler quilts!
