AND SEW IT BEGINS

 My 2015 Sew my Stash all begins with
GHASTLIES and the
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 side...in my sewing room...
This kinda puts the size into a HUGE perspective!  

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



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...

  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.
