My Favorite Color is Moda Sew Along - Blocks 4 & 5 from twiddletails

 I'm thinking I may need to find another sew along to join because making one block a month is driving me crazy.

Block 4 & 5 are simple half square triangle blocks.

Disclaimer: Sometimes I will change the pattern instructions a little bit because a different way works better for me. This does not mean that the pattern won't work exactly as written. If you follow the pattern, your blocks will still turn out fine.

What will make this block lay much flatter is paying attention to your pressing direction.

Tips/Instructions:
1. Pin. I'm not a big ...

My favorite color… from Moda Lissa

Do you have a favorite color? I thought I did, Red, no wait, Blue, no really it is Orange. Well this is what happens to me every time I sit down to start a quilt. I love them all.

So when it came time for Moda’s Block of the Month sampler, My Favorite Color is Moda I count decide.

The program has 6 different combinations of 10 colors. The designer of this quilt is Michelle White who happens to be in the office right next door to me.  Seeing all the combinations that Michelle was creating made me fall ...

My Favorite Color is Moda Sew Along - Blocks 2 & 3 from twiddletails

Time to make Block 2 (and 3). This one is a little smaller but I do think Moda is having us make the bigger blocks first so we can get our feet wet, so to speak.

This is my block.  A confession: I took the photo from this angle because my block is just a teenie bit wonky.
And I didn't notice that this month we're making two blocks, so I suppose I'll be doing a bit of sewing later today. Maybe the 2nd one will be straighter.

Experimenting ~ Bella Solids ~ My Favorite Color is Moda from Life in the Scrapatch


I have recently bought the 
My Favorite Color Panel and Yardage 
that I blogged about Here 
because I loved the fabric.


I decided it would be fun and informational to experiment and do a color comparison with the panel, yardage and my Bella Solids Color Chart. 


Here is a comparison between the panel and my chart 
for one of my favorite colors, Fresh Green.
It is almost spot on.


Here is another panel and chart comparison and favorite, Tangarine.
This one looks very, very close. 


Summer Sky is slightly different, but close enough. 
Again, this is the large panel and ...

My Favorite Color is Moda Sew Along - Block 1 from twiddletails

Today is the day! We're making the first block of our My Favorite Color is Moda (MFCIM) quilt!

It is huge - 36" x 36"!


Moda's first blog post is up too. I wasn't sure what blog posts would look like, and didn't want to post a bunch of tips that Moda may have already published. It seems to be more of a photo post though, so thankfully I did write down a couple of tings as I was making the block.

Before I start however, a prep tip. I made myself a little cheat sheet.  If ...

I Like Thursday #82 ~ Adding Color to Winter Days from Life in the Scrapatch

 

A rainbow of color always makes me happy. 

These fabrics are for a new quilt that I am (finally) making for 2021.

A "Temperature Quilt" has been on my To-Do List for a few years.

A "Tiny House Quilt" has been on this list even longer.


A quilt that features the Kona Color of the Year ~ Horizon was added Here.

I have decided to check off all three of these boxes in one quilt.

I bought this jelly roll for the "sky" color for all my house blocks.

This is my color plan for my Temperature House Quilt 2021.

This ...

Kits are available in 6 colorways or you can purchase a pattern and use your own fabrics.  This would be so pretty as a scrappy quilt!

My Favorite Color is Moda Sew Along - Cutting Tips from twiddletails


Ready to cut your fabric?

To get started, find a bin or tub to store everything in and put a new blade in your rotary cutter.

Here are a couple of helpful things I learned during the cutting process:

1. Baggies are a must. Get 20 baggies and mark each with a block number (1-20). I marked mine with a Sharpie and, even though this was completely coincidental, it made it easier to see numbers through the bags than a label would have done.

3. Use the biggest bags you have - within reason. If they're too small, you'll ...
