Blocks, Blocks, Blocks

So being sick last week kind of threw off everything I had planned and now it is all spilling into this week ;)  You know how it goes sometimes ;)  So even though the first thing I wanted to do when I started feeling better was to sew, I figured it was probably best to put away Christmas first!!!  Yippee for crossing that WIP off the list!!

Then, there was no guild in sewing together blocks, and blocks, and more blocks.  Yup, I have had some serious fun the last few days ;)

I finished up the nine 12" blocks for my Modern Building Blocks quilt ;)  I tell you what, after making all of those little 6" guys, these were cake ;)  They went together so fast and I am getting so excited to see this one all done.  Only 9 more blocks to sew :)

Edit - I have been asked where to buy Modern Building Block Kits.  There are several shops that sell them . . . Of my sponsors,  you can buy them from Fat Quarter Shop or Green Fairy Quilts.  Hope this helps ;)

Then it was time to start another little secret project.   This one I won't have to keep secret long, so I promise to share more soon.   It was so nice to cut up this beautiful rainbow of Riley Blake solids.   It just made me smile ;)  Gotta love a pretty rainbow to brighten a snow filled day ;)

And now, I have a new block to get sewing today!!!   The first block in the Snapshots Quilt Along that is.  It's called Let Them Eat Cake and I am pretty sure that as soon as I start sewing it together I am going to be craving a piece of cake ;)   The video for this block just went up, so you can check it out here ;)  I will be sharing more tomorrow  ;)

So that's been my last few days . . . What about you . . . What are you working on??
Pin It!


  1. I need to get to working on my Modern Building Block and yours are looking great! Can't wait to see it all put together! The snapshots quilt is too cute and I wish I had the time for it. Ugh! Those Riley Blake colors are exciting, can't wait to see what you have sewing up!

  2. I've been looking at the snapshot quilt and really want to make it! Love all the blocks, might have to make the modern building block quilt too!

  3. Hmmm, another secret project eh? This should be fun seeing what you are up to!
    Love your Modern Building blocks Melissa! And yay for you, doing the Snapshots quilt along! That will be a gorgeous quilt!

  4. Those MBB are going to be spectacular. I love the color of all of those pretty scraps.
