A few people have asked about total yardage for all 12 of the Modern Blocks of the Month. If you want to follow along and make all 12 blocks in the same fabrics, here is what Alissa recommends, noting that you’ll probably have a lot left over, but you’ll have room for mistakes and for improvisational piecing. (Not all blocks are designed yet, so we can’t be exact.)

  • 2 yards each of 3 different fabrics (solid or print)
  • 3 yards of one background fabric

Also, please join the Modern BOM pool on Flickr where you can post your photos and discuss the various blocks. We want to see your progress!
