So a few months ago, Moda posted about some of their upcoming Quilt-Alongs, including this My Favorite Color is Moda Sampler. I instantly was in love!!! This quilt uses 10 solids to make a beautiful sampler that focuses on color. There are 6 Color Way Kits and I have to say, each is just so pretty!! Here is more details of the QAL :)
The Coastal Kit reminded me of my Modern Building Blocks quilt I made a few years back. And I thought, this Samper has a lot of the same feel, so why not make a companion!!! I can already see them hanging next to each other on the quilt racks, so great!!!
So with my Modern Building Blocks quilt having a Back to Nature, woodsy feel. I thought, how about a Morning Sunrise to go with it ;) And remember these blocks I was cutting out . . . well, I have just enough left over to make up this sampler. Perfect!!! This is going to be some grunge goodness for sure!!!
But before I get to far into this, I have decided that this will be added to my Long Term project pile. I like the idea of trying to keep up with the Quilt Along, but I also know I will have lots of deadlines along the way and I want this quilt to just be relaxing and fun. Of course, with that said, I had the same intention for my Modern Building Blocks quilt and then couldn't stop working on it :) I guess we will just see how it goes.
I just love new "long-term" projects!!!
How about you, and new projects on your plate??
You could always join in this quilt along. I think it will be starting soon :) Just grab your My Favorite Color is Moda booklet and a stack of your favorite colors and away we go!!
I hope you all have a Happy Quilting Day!!
