Half-way through the Mod-Mod Quilt-Along

Here's what half-way looks like for the Full/Queen-size Mod-Mod Sampler:

Half-way through the Mod-Mod QAL

Here's a closer look at the finished June blocks–one of each of the fabric combinations.

Completed Sun BlocksAfter the arcs of the sunrise blocks were paper pieced, I sewed them together into a donut shape, then added a hand-appliquéd circle in the center.  They were set into the background square using the 6-minute circle technique.

I wanted to make sure that the horizon line (seam joining the two halves of the sun's rays) was set square into the background, so I marked the freezer paper template with lines that I could use to line things up.

If you like the looks of my half-finished sampler, it's not too late to jump in and make one of your own.  All the blocks patterns we've made so far can be found on the Free Quilt Block Patterns page on this blog.

The number of blocks you'll need to make for each of the 6 sizes (from 42 inch square small sampler quilt to 105 inch square King-size Bed quilt) and the layouts for each of the 6 quilts can be found on the Block Lotto here:

Since I have become a fan of paper piecing, those sunrise blocks are calling my name. Actually, thanks for linking to the previous block patterns. I really don't need to start anything new, but it's nice that they are there, waiting for me. Love the yellow/gray for the sunrise. Calm, yet with a sense of something new ready to happen.
