 My 2015 Sew my Stash all begins with
Moda Modern Building Blocks pattern

You can buy a pattern from many vendors on line for around $12.00 - just google it.
Kits are also available...but many are using their own fabrics. 

For a peek at the Moda pattern design and assembly instructions
you can find a PDF here

Block 1 - 36" square

Block 2 - 36" block

Side by my sewing room...
This kinda puts the size into a HUGE perspective!  

Block 1 and 2 - that's 6 feet of fabulous GHASTLIES!

Block 3   - 30" square
but has 93 pieces "POINTY" pieces

This one had me shaking in my shoes
 but I just took my time, fixed my mistakes, redid some seams 
til it finally came together.

I can't decide on the outside round of color, 
so I will wait...finish a few more blocks that go around it
and then decide. The fabric will have to talk to me!

   If you are on Instagram check out hashtag
#modernbuildingblocks or #modabuildingblcoks
to see some fantastic fabric choices for this pattern
other than just solids.

I'm not an all solid color kinda girl!

And just sew I made sure I wouldn't run out of Ghastlies
I bought MORE!   bahahahahaha

 Yep, the orange and black Kona will go with my
ORANGE GHASTLIES collection and kwilts!

I'll add this to my other Ghastlies to...


  1. Love how your blocks are coming along :)

  2. it's going to the gastly awesome -- I'm starting this project on monday with a group and i hope that it keep me motivated

  3. Looks like you're "pointed" in the right direction. You go, girl!

  4. I like, I really like. And this is certainly tempting me but I don't have that much Ghastlies and I won't buy more. :) I'll just have to watch to see what you create.

  5. Wow those make big squares. Good luck with your quilt.

  6. Love this! I love a good halloween fabric and this is a great way to use it. Can't wait to see it all come together.
