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 in love with one of the “rejected” color combinations. I loved the grey, white and red. It was so Scandinavian, fresh and different. I said, ” I want to make that one.” Michelle was too kind to put the info together for me, but she also created options. I am not good with options. I can’t even decide what my favorite color is how can I choose with options? I just wanted to join in on the Quilt-along.
Michelle created another option combining the Scandinavian version and the Cookie Tin version. Then she swapped around some of the reds and greens and I was ready to commit. I knew some one in my family would want this for Christmas.
This is MY color way version of My Favorite Color is Moda project.
Block 1 is a fun big 36″ block.
2 and 3 are variations of courthouse steps. So very much the same but different.
Block 4 – a variation of a sawtooth star. Turning the triangles in different directions creates all kinds of options.
It is not to late to join in on the Quilt- along. Ask at your favorite shop for the fabric and pattern. For more information, visit the Moda’s Inspiration Center.
I am certainly saving the grey and red color palette. It is dreamy.
That’s some great ideas. Thanks!
