Moda Modern Building Blocks Sewalong - getting started

Welcome to the start of the Moda Building Blocks Sewalong. If like me, you've seen photos of this lovely quilt popping up over blog land and have been tempted to make the quilt, then you're in the right place. My pattern arrived last week from Sew and Quilt but I'm finishing off another project before diving in.
So what do you need to do to join in?
1. Purchase the pattern, this is not available as a download. I've seen it available at:
Sew and Quilt where's it's currently sold out
Fat Quarter Shop who are also doing a kit which starts shipping in November
Simply solids who are doing a monthly kit
Fig Tree are doing a lovely kit combining solids and some small prints from their new range.
2. Download the assembly and finishing directions at Moda Fabrics. This will also give you the fabric quantities to enable you to:
3. Assemble your fabrics so you can share your plans in a linkup on Monday, 22 September. We will then start making four blocks every four weeks with a link up here on the Monday for you to share your progress.
4. Grab yourself the Sewalong button on the right.
8 Sept    Start of sewalong
22 Sept  Share your fabric choices
20 Oct   Share your first four blocks - I will be making blocks 1,5,6 and 7 so I can make the B section
17 Nov  Share four more blocks - I plan to do blocks 4, 9, 14 and 18 to complete block D
15 Dec  Share four more blocks and we'll have done a third of the blocks - I plan to do the remaining 36" block - 2 along with blocks 25, 36, and 43
12 Jan  Take it easy over Xmas and do blocks 23,38,40 and 41
Come back here next Monday and I'll show you how I'm organising myself for this sewalong.
