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!
