I was looking for something today in my sewing room when I reached behind the fabric stack at the front of a shelf, and found this:
It’s my partially completed Moda Modern Building Blocks quilt! I began this quilt nearly a year ago, and it’s been almost that long since I last worked on it.
It’s always fun to look at blocks I’ve sewn after not seeing them for a long time. In some ways I like them more. I really liked this quilt pattern made in all solids, but couldn’t justify spending more on fabric, so I chose my Anna Maria Horner stash for this quilt, with a few others mixed in. I remember being worried/disappointed about some of my fabric choices back when I made these, but I’m not bothered by them now.
I also found a stack of fabrics that I remember choosing for my next blocks before I stalled on the project entirely. The problem is, I don’t remember which fabrics were for what blocks, and I didn’t write it down, so… we will see. There are a lot of six inch blocks ahead!
I would really like to finish this quilt, but I think it will need to wait until the new year when I hope things will settle down a little. (wishful thinking, I know) Still, it’s nice to have rediscovered these blocks.
What unfinished project have you rediscovered lately, lurking in some random place? I wish I could say this is my only one, but in truth I have several. One of these days I’ll finish them up!
