Moda Modern Building Blocks

My local quilt shop is doing the Moda Modern Building Blocks quilt as a block of the month.  This month our assignment was block 3 and block 29.  Block 3 is huge – 30 inches square, and block 29 is small – 6-1/2 inches square.

Block 3 has 93 pieces and the instructions we got were good, but very difficult for me as I am so good at assuming what to do next instead of carefully reading the instructions.  My seam-ripper and I are best friends.  Some corners don’t meet exactly and some points are a little hidden in seams – but overall it looks pretty good from a safe distance.

Here is Block #29.  It was much easier to do than the above clock and I only had to rip out three seams!

Here’s hoping that the next month’s blocks are smaller than 30 inches and have less pieces!
