Modern 99 - 11 down...1 to go!

Aaahh, the sweet "almost" end to a bee.  Last year I was hot and heavy into joining bee after bee and swap after swap.  I have enjoyed every one of them, but I came to realize that it is more fun to work on my stuff so as the end of year draws closer, and my bee obligations thin out, I'm getting excited!

This particular bee is to pick a block out of the Modern 99 book, send fabric to the members and end up with 12 blocks.

In November our hostess selected the "Everything Equal" block with some Cuzco by Kate Spain.  You know, on a side note, I really like her fabric designs. Ok, so back to the block.  The background fabric is denim, which I had never worked with but it really coordinates beautifully with this fabric line. The block construction was easy but it will be interesting to see the finished quilt and how she arranges the blocks in final placement.

Enjoy your day!!


  1. Wow! This looks fun! I've never worked with denim either, how hard was it to work with? Press? I might have to look into more bees this next year. I am in two, my guild gals and the do.Good bee. PS I love Kate Spain fabric too!

  2. It has been great to be in this bee with you. You have been a great host. I too look
    Forward to being done with bee obligations. I have been in several and they are really fun to be challenged by others. However I think I am confident I can make any block that fancies me, so I too am off to make for myself.

  3. I've never worked with denim either. Was it hard to sew something so thick?


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