MODA Love – Round 3

Getting closer!  This is Round 3 of the MODA Love pattern that circulated through the designer blogs earlier in the month.

Round 3 is made from layer cake squares that are joined into HSTs and plain 9 1/2″ squares.  I only used a couple of repeat fabrics in the outer round.

It was hard to get a good picture since I’m short and it is now 72″ square in size.

I’m so glad that I have put this quilt top together!  I am going to add another round of black fabric for a narrow border, then alternating 5″ charm pack and black squares for another border, to be finished off with one more plain black narrow border.  It should be a good size for a queen bed.

I’m also still plugging along with my WHIT pattern.  I have finished half of my flock of geese.  After taking out the one square in the pack that matched my background fabric, I have 82 flying geese made:

Now to do this all again with my second mini charm pack and I will be ready to assemble!

Here is the pile of trimmings I have left over – to give you a sense of the waste from the pattern/method.  Certainly worth it I think.  The mini Fit to Be Geese ruler by Monique Dillard makes these into perfect geese units.  I can’t wait to see them fly all together in my finished quilt top.

Have a wonderful weekend!  See you on the other side!
