Challenge Block(s)

Our guild issued a challenge last month.  We all received one fat quarter of this fabric.

And we were tasked with making one 12 1/2 block out of it.  The rules were that we could only use up to 3 coordinating solids to go with it.  Not only did I get one block, but two out of my fat quarter. Last night we presented and the variety was fabulous.

Updated: to add some of the other blocks here.

Switch that Thang!

July has brought us a switch in the Mod Mosaic Bee I am participating in.  Shelley has asked for black and white fabrics which read lighter along with a black border. One block needs a lime splash and the other a turquoise splash.  Stunning result! My turn is coming up this fall and I just might consider something along these lines.

And just so you know, the asterisk looking fabric doesn't seem so creamy in person, I'm not sure why it showed up that way in the photos.

Modern 99 for July

Happy July!
Here is the Modern 99 block chosen by Lori of LoriHDesigns.
Lovely isn't it!
The best part of this block is that all the fabric came pre-cut so all I had to do was sew it up! This is going to be an exciting block to see in a finished quilt!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July to you!

This is a mug rug I received from Anna.  Isn't it delightful! 

And this was a swap where we had the same partner so this is what I sent to her, since she indicated she liked stars.

Enjoy your holiday, even if it is on a Wednesday in the middle of the week! Remember, life is what you make it.  Make it a great day.
