Back in the Saddle!

I have a lot to share with you these days! My machine is back and I'm humming away.

First up to share are my Mod Mosaic Blocks for August. Our hostess sent us some fabric (that used to be a garment, the birdcage print) along with some other fabrics and also included some linen for the sashing.

This was the first time I worked with linen, and you know what, I think I like it. It is a bit sturdier, but the texture is what intrigues me too. There might just be some linen in my future.....

Next month I am the hostess and I have no idea what I would like.  I was thinking red, because I really like red, but lately I am drawn to orange/coral too, so who knows - I have a couple weeks though.

Take a look at some of the other blocks I've created for this bee.

  1. Love it, especially the way you fussy cut the bird and cage. Have been reminding myself of your other blocks - they're all lovely, I especially love March and June (so colourful:-)

  2. That is so cool - I love the fussy cut bird cage.

  3. That's a cute block! Loving the fussy cutting!

  4. Darling block! I wasn't sure about linen the first time I used it, but I've come to love working with linen/cotton blend fabrics, especially for bags.


I look forward to reading your note - thanks for taking the time to comment!
