Moda - Modern Building Blocks

Whilst browsing the other day I saw some Camille Roskelley blocks and wondered what they were.  It turned out they were part of a new pattern produced by Moda called Modern Building Blocks.  Well they looked fun so an email to Sue and she had already had a pattern on the way to me.  (what are good friends for!)
Next was the fun part - choosing the fabrics.  Well the pattern is all in solids but I decided for a bit of variety.  I love the new Cotton and Steel collection so any excuse to buy a little more.  It also turned out that The Village Haberdashery had put together some solids to match the Cotton and Steel - so that's where I went shopping.
I had to wait a little longer for my fabric as customs decided it was a bike worth £277.  After I persuaded them I hadn't spent that much and it definitely was not a bike!

So next I decided to go for it and link up with Sue and the Moda Building Blocks Sewalong.

The solids:

and for a bit of variety and texture the basics:

I may well throw in a couple of Cotton and Steel prints too, we shall see!
