Modern Building Blocks Quilt Along: Month 4 - Section D

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and was able to get caught up on our quilt along! This month's section has five larger blocks, and they didn't take me too long.  So hopefully they won't take you too long either!

Section D

Block 4 - 24"

Block 7 - 18"

Block 9 - 18"

Block 14 - 12"

Block 18 - 12"

Below shows all five blocks together for Section D.  I might redo Block 4 because I am not sure that I like it with the others, but I am going to wait until I have all of the other blocks finished first.

And now for the exciting part, our winner for last month's Section C is Stacey @ The Tilted Quilt. Congrats Stacey!  I will get your red and white fabric bundle and Aurifil thread out to you as soon as possible.  Thank you so much to everyone for participating and I hope you continue to play along!

For our Section D prize, I figured I might change it up a bit, this month's prize will be a $25 gift card to the Etsy shop!  This way you can choose whatever you like.  Any suggestions for future prizes are always welcome, just comment below.

Note:  Gift card value does not include shipping costs, thank you!

Just add your photo link of your Section D below by February 15, 2015 and I will choose one entry at random for our Etsy Shop Gift Certificate!  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

Modern Building Blocks Quilt Along: Month 3 - Section C Part 2

As you know from my previous quilt along post, I was terribly behind on my Section C blocks.  I am sure many of us had crazy Decembers, so hopefully this extra time helped everyone get caught up.  I just wanted to take a moment to post my photos of my completed Section C and remind everyone that you still have until 18 January to get your Section C photos linked up in my original post for this section.

Section C had only nine blocks.  Below are the block numbers, sizes, and photos of my blocks.

Block 3 - 30"

Block 11 - 12"

Block 13 - 12"

Block 15 - 12"

Block 16 - 12"

Blocks 48, 23, 24, 29 (from top to bottom) - 6"
Below is my completed Section C.  Please link up your Section C photos here to be entered for a great prize of fabric and Aurifil thread and floss.  And also remember you can print out your Gooba Designs MMBB block checklist here.  Hope to see your blocks soon!

Moda's Piece and Comfort Challange 2015 Starts Today!

Our shop is participating in Moda's Piece and Comfort Challenge starting today and I hope that you will join in!  This particular challenge serves to recognize and honor the sacrifices that are made by our country's military families.  As an Army family, we know the challenges facing military families first hand and we are so excited to be a part of this fun challenge.  Being an online only shop we will obviously not be able to display entry quilts in our shop, however we will have all of our shop entries displayed in an upcoming blog post on April 6th for everyone to vote on a shop winner.  We will also  show off our entries on our Instagram account as well!  Each shop's Viewer's Choice winner will receive a prize and be entered into Moda's Piece and Comfort national online quilt show.  The winners for the Moda's national online quilt show will be announced May 8th.

Now here is how to enter.  You can view all the information that you need for the challenge here or I can email you the information as well.  If you are interested in potentially participating email me at and I can send you an entry form and all other information.  You can either fill out the entry and email it back to me or send it to our address that will be included in the email sent. 
The challenge begins today, January 1st and runs through March 31st.  The two featured fabrics are Red, White & Free by Sandy Gervais and Because of the Brave by Moda.  We have a few Red, White & Free by Sandy Gervais pre-cuts and some yardage available in our Etsy shop, however you do not need to purchase fabric from our shop to enter your quilt with our shop.  If you are interested in purchasing from our shop, use the coupon code PIECE2015 for 15% off of any purchase with Red, White & Free fabric now through the end of the month or while supplies last!  (coupon code not valid for preorder items)
Hope to see your quilts soon!
