Moda's Summer in the Country Quilt Along - Blocks 1 & 2

The first 2 blocks for Moda's summer quilt along this year, Summer in the Country, are live today.
The Pinwheel Parade block was designed by Susan Vaughn and the instructions are here.
 The Moonlight block is the one I designed and the instructions are here.
 If you haven't yet seen the setting suggestions, you should check them out.  I love the Grandstand setting by Anne Wiens.  All the details can be found here.
 The other setting option, Country Picnic by Lisa Jo Girodat is just as wonderful.  You can get the details for it here.
Part of me wishes I was making the whole quilt but I knew that I didn't have the time for it then.  Instead I've ordered a layer cake of the line when it comes out next month and I'll be sewing up my own summer picnic quilt with this adorable fabric line.  

I can't wait to see the blocks as everyone starts to make their own versions.

Good for you to be designing and participating! So many BOMs and samplers are available these days, I don't know how a quiltmaker begins to choose which one to make!
