Yippee!!! I am so excited to share this finish this morning. My Modern Building Blocks, Back to Nature Edition quilt is finished!!!!
Now, when I first started this quilt the idea was to have a quilt that I could make a few blocks a month. No deadline, no assembly line sewing, just making each little block one at a time. And then I started putting them together ;)
They were so much fun to put together I couldn't stop!!!! I started with all of the little 6" blocks and worked my way up to these super large blocks!!! And I can honestly say that I had fun sewing each and every block. It was such a blast to put together and an excellent technique workshop as well ;) I just love all of those happy points!!!
I love the beautiful tones in this quilt. It just blows me away that you can have so many wonderful different blocks but yet because of the colors it is still calm. I used mostly Denyse Schmidt Fat Quarter Solids and then some Kona Solids and Bella Solids for the bigger pieces :)
When it came time to quilt it, I decided to go with a wavy cross hatch ;) I love the added dimension it gives to the quilt ;) And, I wore my pedometer and got in a mile of walking back and forth across the long arm ;) I have always wanted to see how far I walk when I do this kind of stitching ;)
I know it will probably be asked, but I think this is my favorite bock in the quilt. It took me forever to decide :)
And in case you are wondering, I changed the layout from the original pattern as I wanted the quilt to be square :) Luckily, everything was divisible by 6 so it wasn't to hard to rearrange ;) And all I had to do was make one additional 6" block and it all worked out ;)
And that's my Modern Building Blocks : Back to Nature Edition ;) And can I just sum up by saying I Love This Quilt!!!!!!!!
Thanks for stopping in today ;)
