Moda Modern Building Blocks Quilt Along

     For the month of November Section B of the Modern Moda Building Blocks is only 3 blocks.

     Block # 1 is a whopping 36 inches square

Block # 5 is 18 inches square

Block # 6 is also 18 inches square

I connected these 3 blocks and came up with a 36-1/2 X 54-1/2 inch unit!  Holy Moley!!! And this is only a small part of this quilt!!!!   This is the picture that Moda sent with the pattern.

Here are my Units A & B.....

As I said in my post back in October, I'm using mainly Denyse Schmidt fabrics with some neutrals thrown in.  Block # 1 will be an exception though.  I'm working with fat quarters and half yard pieces and believe it or not, the geese units that make up the star measure 9-1/2 X 18-1/2!  I had to dip into some of my stash to make this block but I kept with "like" fabrics so I think it will all look nice together.

On another note, our baby watch is still on.......9 more days to go  :) (or thereabouts).
