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.
I am finished with my quilt for the Seasons to Taste blog hop. I am last on the line up and will share my quilt here on Feb. 2nd. I knew the colors I wanted to use, so I started with scraps from one of my quilts in Sisterhood of Scraps and combined them with a quilt that will be in Scrap School this Feb. Pulling these fabrics was fun to think about and how different they look with a few added fabrics. deadline- end of Jan.- CHECK
The QUILT ALONGS continue
I have all my blocks done. Just need to decide on a setting.
Another QAL I have joined is the one Bonnie and Camille are hosting using their new book, Quilt Bee.

My Favorite Color is Moda
I am adding My Favorite Color is Moda to the list of QAL’s. You can read all about it on the Moda Inspiration and Resources page. Michelle White designed this project and I loved the Scandinavian feel of one of her initial drawings. She knew I have a hard time making up my mind so she created another color option combining the look of the Scandinavian and added Christmas.
I am going with option 2.
The pattern and fabric kits are available at your favorite quilt store.
Christmas 2021… here I come.
I also want to thank all my teachers for those dreaded progress reports. I really had very good grades but just sometimes messed up on the conduct part. Teachers hang in there. You are are molding the lives of the future either in class or virtually.
