My Favorite Color is Moda - Blocks 16 & 17

Oh my gosh, it’s October already!  

CT MFC Blocks 16 and 17 Blocks

This month we’re sewing Blocks 16 & 17 of the My Favorite Color is Moda sampler. Even though we’re nearing the end, there’s always time to catch up.  Check with your local quilt shop for the pattern, and any fabric or kits they’ve put together.  We’ll be sharing a new block - or blocks - the First Tuesday of every month through the end of 2021.

Note: Pattern corrections are at the end of this post.

If you missed this Bella Solids colorway the first time around, this fabric combination is called Tropical Getaway, and it packs a punch!  Between the two blocks for this month, you’ll be using all ten of the colorway fabrics:  Jade (9900 108), Dark Teal (9900 110), Horizon Blue (9900 111), Christmas Green (9900 14), Clementine (9900 209), Popsicle (9900 143), Sangria (9900 410), Sugar Plum (9900 303), Cyclamen (9900 412), and Boysenberry (9900 217).

There is a pattern correction we’d already discovered for BLOCK 17, so make sure to read through before you start sewing.  In the PIECING section, the third block pairing reads correctly that you should use Fabric 1 and 6 to make HST.  However, the thumbnail image for the HST shows the incorrect fabrics, they should be the Green and Pink for Fabrics 1 and 6.  All of the cutting instructions are correct for the block.

Also, just to note that we’ve heard whispers of people having this issue:  Anywhere in the pattern that sizes are given for the Finished Size of a block or unit, that means the size after fully sewn into the quilt, with all seam allowance taken out.  So, for both of these blocks, numbers 16 and 17, when you’re piecing the corner units, the size of the completed unit on it’s own is 7¼” — which will measure 6¾” when finished and sewn into the quilt.

Now that the ‘business’ is taken care of, how about some fun with these blocks?  With so many elements within each block — quarter square triangles, half square triangles, corner units—there’s truly endless ways to customize the block with different fabric choices and the same construction.

MFCIM Pattern Correction Notes:

For ALL blocks, the measurement given for Finished Size is the size once the block is sewn into the quilt (after taking out seam allowance).  A block with a finished size of 18”x18” will measure 18.5”x18.5” when the piecing is completed but is not yet sewn into the final quilt.

BLOCK 17: In the ‘Piecing’ section, the third block pairing reads correctly that you should use Fabric 1 & 6 to make HST.  However, the thumbnail image for the HST shows the incorrect fabrics, they should be the Green and Pink for Fabrics 1 and 6.  All of the cutting instructions are correct for the block.

BLOCK 18: In the ‘Piecing’ section, the thumbnail images for the block components are correct, but the fabrics listed for each are wrong.  The first thumbnail needs Fabric 1 & 9, and the second thumbnail need Fabric 8 & 1.  All of the cutting instructions are correct for the block.                 

We will continue to list any pattern corrections in these blog posts for your reference.
