Moda Modern Building Blocks

I spotted this quilt on the internet a few months ago and immediately started looking for a source to buy the pattern and found that you could pre-order it from Sew and Quilt. So I pre-ordered a copy for me and one for Jane (without telling Jane). However Jane asked me about two weeks ago where the pattern could be downloaded and I admitted to already having it on pre-order.

Fig Tree are also doing this as a Block of The Month using their own signature colours. In the UK Justine at Simply Solids is doing it as a Block of the Month using the original Bella Solids by Moda.
I understand the UK distributor was taking delivery of the patterns on Wednesday, so mine should be here next week. Happy dance. What do you think about doing this over the twelve months as a sew along? There are 48 blocks which makes for easy maths and I thought of breaking the blocks down into the seven sections shown in the Block assembly handout. I am going to start with blocks 1,5 and 6 to complete section B and block 4 from section D.
My colours:
Low volume for the backgrounds instead of eggshell
Modern fabrics in similar colours to the Bella solids
If you'd like to join in, come back on 15 September to share your fabric pull and on 1 October to share your first four blocks.
