Moda- "Spell it with Fabric" Blocks~Finished!!

Pin It

Hi Everyone!

I've finished my Moda~Spell it with Fabric Blocks! YAY! They were a LOT of fun to make! and I found that I have boosted my piecing ability at the same time! Because, there are some blocks that require you to be a little more careful on how you sew them together. And cut out!

For instance, the X and Y blocks are full of pieces that intertwine to make the diagonal lines...

Let me know if you are going to try them...I'll probably make another quilt...since these were so much fun! Each grandchild should have one, doesn't matter the age!

* Get a Jelly Roll out, and start cutting, most of the pieces are 2-1/2" wide!

This is my X, I remade it with a print that more closely matched the check.
The previous X was too stripy looking.

P Q & R Blocks, looking good! Now, notice how these blocks, which are near the end of the alphabet are brighter than the blocks I made at the beginning of the alphabet? I started using more current prints and the other prints are from years ago.

I wanted to do something special with the T. Since it was such a simple block, I wanted to really scrap it up.

V & W were fun blocks, because I love PINK!

X Y & Z were a little more challenging to do, but, by the time you get to the end of the alphabet, you'll be whipping these out! 

 I can't wait to finish the "sashing" for this quilt! I started doing it with the A B C, etc. and will get these done this year!

Here is another way to finish up the alphabet blocks! Isn't it great?! Find the patterns on the Moda's website! Along with Finishing instructions and the Designers blocks and finished quilts!

    1. Yes, it does look a LOT better! And I like see them all together, too. I should take a picture of them all laid out. Then you'll notice the color changes in the prints.

  2. I just love your quilt! I have all the block patterns, and I want to make one of these before the year is out. I have 3 grandkids (one is actually almost here, April 11), so I think you're right. Every grandchild needs one!

    1. Thanks Lynne! The blocks go faster then the cutting out. I'm sure your grandkids will love this quilt. There is a Moda designer that made the blocks half size and it would be a perfect baby quilt. and then a wallhanging after they grow out of it.

  3. Congratulations, alphabets are the hardest things to do in any media. I remember how hard it was to do them in Drypoint Printing. I was grey haired and bleary eyed by the time I'd finished. I had a very short fuse too!

    1. These are really fun blocks, and so many ways to make them. I've seen some women make small blocks that fit inside of the letters! pretty cute!

  5. Good job, they are in box to do! Promised myself to complete at least one of my quilts this month! UFO's of scrap quilts! I hope to have a picture or two next week!
