Moda Modern Building Blocks 1

Moda Modern Building Blocks Sewalong
I wasn't as prepared as I expected for sharing our first four blocks as holidays and customer work have limited my time over the last month. However this morning I sewed two blocks that I cut yesterday and I think my Sewjo is back.
Firstly here's block 5 - an 18" block made of fabrics by Carolyn Friedlander.

Then block 7 uses the background scraps from block 5 along with some Basic Grey grunge and stitched circle. Bold colours. I waited until the rest of the block had been pieced before adding the four corners.

Block 6 which is also an 18" block, uses Cotton and Steel, Basic Grey Grunge and Bake Sale. Not as in your face as the previous block.

 Blocks 5 and 6 are then joined together to make part of section B. I recommend stitching the sections together as you make more blocks as then finishing the quilt top will be quicker once the last few blocks are finished.

Then finally I pieced one of the 24" blocks - number 4. I'm loving how this looks. It uses grunge again, Summersville, Bake Sale, Pearl Bracelets and the background text fabric.
And here are my first four blocks together. The orange dominates at the moment, but as we make further blocks, I'm sure it will be less dominant.

How Are your Moda Building Blocks coming along? Link below to share your progress.
