Hello and welcome to my day on the Moda - Spell it with fabric blog hop.  My name is Aneela Hoey and to date I have designed 7 collections for Moda.  My newest collection is called Hello Petal and it is now available in stores.  I've been busy sewing away with it as you will see below.  For this hop, Moda have put together an entire alphabet of quilt blocks for you to use as you wish.  As you visit each of the blogs on the hop you will be able to download pdf's for making each letter.  As you might have guessed from the photo above my letter is A.  You can find the pdf for making the A block here.
