I confess (yes...here's another confession from me) that I was one of those old traditional quilters who just had to make complicated blocks with lots of triangles and a jillion pieces to each block. NO MORE! Quilting should be fun....not difficult!
And.........along came Moda with charm packs and Jelly rolls! Hurray!
While on a recent Shop Hop (everything I bought is in a previous post) with my sister and niece, we saw several Sudoku quilts and all 3 of us bought Moda charm packs. Now, I don't do Sudoku puzzles or like the idea of having to arrange the squares in a certain way, but the colorful simplicity of the 9 patch layout for the blocks just called to me. There is nothing more simple for making quilts than the square shape, and the simple 9 patch layout for blocks has been a favorite of quiltmakers for decades. No complicated blocks ......fun to sew!
The Giddy line by Sandy Gervais for Moda is a winner! I bought the turquoise for the borders, and already had some red that is perfect for the narrow sashings.
Let the sorting begin for each block!
My "system" is easy....just number each block.
Since I'm using Giddy turquoise for my borders, I'll put a square of turquoise in the middle of all my blocks.
but, not all the same turquoise print.
Gosh....even my corners match on this block......(yay! no complications).
Stay tuned later to see the finished quilt top.
Thanks for visiting!
