Choose Your Own Block-Along, 10/13/14

My block-along took a bit of  a "ghastlie" detour this week when I had the brainiac idea to start the Modern Building Blocks quilt by Moda with a Halloween theme.

The following blocks will really give you no idea of scale because they all appear to be the same size, but maybe you can find them in the pattern above.

This one is 18". (Hint: It is the green and white block above, left side, right above the midpoint.)
 The next two are each a whopping 36"! (This one is the large one near the bottom on the right.)
(This is near the center of the quilt, the two-tone aqua with the red and white triangles.)
This is 30".(This is in the upper right-hand corner.)
Maybe I'll be back to 6" squares next week. At this rate, I could have probably finished all the blocks in the City Sampler!

What have you been up to this week? Don't forget to check out Rene's progress this week!

These are so fun! I can absolutely see why you took a ghastly turn!!

I already have been wanting to make the quilt you are now working on, and I LOVE your fabric choices too...might just be ordering the pattern cards after all!

I've had my eye on that Ghastlie fabric but didn't know what to do with it. Oh what fun! Love it.

Patty said... #

I love thte colorful Halloween blocks! Did you notice the triangle that is turned in the last block? Or was it on purpose?

Lisa J. said... #

I can see why you got distracted by this project. It looks like a lot of fun.

Nana said... #

Amazing how the different colors build such totally different views. Very fun looking squares.

Wow! Your blocks are coming out so beautiful! Great idea to use the Ghastlies...

I"ve enjoyed watching this on IG...such a great idea. It's got just enough novelty fabric to get the idea without making it so "themey" as most halloween quilts seem to be.
