May's Mod-Mod QAL Progress

The update for the Mod-Mod QAL was published on Block Lotto last week, here:

It's a Mod-Mod May Update

You can download all my block patterns for the blocks we've made so far on my Free Quilt Block Patterns Page, as well as all of last year's blocks and the ever-popular Violet block.

I shared the blocks for my Color-Block Mod-Mod throw-size on Saturday. I'm making that one as part of the Rainbow Scraps Challenge, with each month's blocks being made in the designated color.

Here's the queen-size version that I am making, with the blocks arranged in what will be their relative position in the quilt.

Mod-Mod QAL Blocks Jan-through-May

A more organized quilter would probably have already made the quilt she's sharing with the world, but I'm finding it fun to be part of the QAL myself, even if I have to share my own missteps and moments of second guessing myself along the way ... 

Each month, you know how many blocks you need to make to make a quilt in one of six sizes (from small 42 inch square sampler to a king-sized 105 inch square quilt) and show you the layout for those quilts.

It's a little silly, but I like to pull out my blocks and put them in position on the design wall to see how the fabrics are playing together so far.

I changed up the orientation of the Bias Bars blocks in this quilt ... but I'm not sure that I won't decide to put it  back the way I originally envisioned it.   Right now, I like it both ways.

You can see what other quilters have on their design wall on Judy's Design Wall Monday post on the Patchwork Times.

Yours is truly a design wall. (Mine is a storage place for blocks in the next quilt.) Love the "odd" way you work.
