A few months ago I jumped on the Moda Modern Building Blocks Quilt band wagon. I loved all the gorgeous quilts popping up all over IG and blogland so I got to work as soon as my pattern arrived. And then, after finishing just one giant block, I was done. I suddenly realized that while I liked seeing sampler quilts, I simply didn't want to make one, so the block joined my other orphan blocks and I completely abandoned the idea of a sampler quilt.
And then, the other day as I was looking for something totally unrelated, I came across this one lonely block and decided it was time I gave it a new life. It was a large block (finished at 36" square), so I simply added two thick-ish solid borders and my quilt top was done.
I pieced a super simple backing using fabric from my stash. I think it contrasts quite nicely with the super graphic front. As far as quilting goes, I went with my absolute favorite for when I want the finished quilt to be nicely squishy and cozy - straight lines about 1 1/2" apart.
The quilt finished at 36" x 48", perfect size for some baby snuggles.
