Happy Wednesday! I hope you are having a wonderful June! This week I spent quite a bit of time finishing up my Moda Building Blocks quilt top. It’s all in one piece now!
It’s a big quilt, so it’s been a little hard to photograph indoors (at the end of the post I have an outside photo of the full quilt). I’ve had a few questions about the fabrics…they are all from a variety of Moda collections by many different Moda designers, and some have been in my stash for several years.
I had so much fun making the 6″ blocks–and there were quite a few of them to make for the bottom half of the quilt. Making those small blocks reminded me of working on my Farmer’s Wife quilt. Some of my blocks are extra scrappy because I tried to use up as many of the smaller pieces as possible.
The final block I made was one of the 36″ blocks, but I didn’t have enough of any red fabric for the large square needed to cut the block’s setting triangles. Luckily, my local hardware store had the DaySail collection and I was able to get ⅝ of a yard of the text print on red I needed to finish up!
Although if I were to do it over there are some fabric combos I might change up, I’m truly happy with the finish–I absolutely can’t wait to get this quilted! And It feels good to finish up another project from last year! I’ll be sure to share photos again when it’s all quilted and bound. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Love, love, love your quilt! Now I wanna make a red-and-white quilt, too:-)
I never would have considered red, but I have to say, yours is stunning!! Red is in my future!!

Yes I was wondering about the hardware store as well? It's a beautiful quilt top and I also have begun to like red and white:))
I made this quilt in bright solids, but now I want to do it all over again in red and white. I have tons of reds in Christmas fabrics-maybe…
love it! I have red & white squares waiting to be sewn together from a red & white swap I did a few years back

There's just something about a red and white quilt! Great job, can't wait to see it finished. L

All I can say is Gorgeous!
Was thinking about this in blue but now I am really torn. What a fabulous finish!
Tammie Smith says
How much White did you need? and What white is it? thanks! I'm considering doing this with yellows and white.
Absolutely beautiful!!!! I love the smaller 6-inch blocks. Now you are inspiring me to make a 2-color quilt. Red would be great in my house!!!
Susan Smith says
Just beautiful! Wish I had made mine that way. Maybe I'll do another…..
love this! Thinking of doing one in blues and white- just came back from visiting Kentucky and bought blues as we visited quilt shops. Thanks for sharing!!
Two color quilts are becoming my favorite, especially red and white. Beautiful!

Beautiful red and white quilt!
Did you really get quilt fabric at your hardware store? If so, that is really cool!
I think it was a stroke of genius to create this quilt in red and white fabrics. It looks stunning!
Red is my very favorite color!! I think my next quilt will be red and white!! Where did you get all of your block measurements?
Beautiful…thanks for sharing and hope to see the quilted version soon.

I love the red and white spin on this quilt! It has such a sweet look to it.
Thanks for sharing!! Love the pattern and have been hoarding blue fabrics to use. Would also love to do one in green – could be so fresh and spring-like with the right fabrics. Well, I have a few in the planning stages before I get to that but I do love your red beauty!!

This is ridiculous pretty, unbelievably lovely WOWIE
I love RED. I love all of these reds. WOW this is such a great quilt!
It's really wonderful, Sherri! It was such a great idea to do the Modern Blocks in red and white. Now my colorful one will seem boring somehow. 🙂
The ultimate red and white quilt. It's beautiful, Sherri.

It's beautiful Sherri!! I love all your red combinations! 🙂 But what I really want to know is what local HARDWARE store do you have that carries fabric?!!!! Hugs, H

Yvonne W says
Love your quilt. I have been collecting red and white fabric for awhile now– waiting to start my red and white quilt. Got more red and white inspiration at the Sydney Quilt Show today– lots of red and white quilts all grouped together– beautiful.
