I Can Do Modern!

Just a few blocks to show you today!
First up, a couple of Bee Blessed blocks for our modern sampler quilt (we’re meeting up this Saturday):
Pattern from the 99 Modern Blocks Book

Tutorial for this block here.
Next I’ve done a couple of blocks to add to my slow-growing pile of red/pink/aqua blocks, which one day will become a quilt!
Don’t tell anyone but this was supposed to be ‘Quartrefoil’, I just didn’t read the instructions properly!  Oops!

‘Jacob’s Ladder’
These are both traditional blocks, but I love the way they can be modernised with more contemporary fabrics & colours.
Jacob’s Ladder is part of a series of biblical blocks that Colette is hosting from her blog. Join in with us if you fancy modifying some good ol’ fashioned blocks.
And talking of blocks, all my Brit Bee blocks are now in! Yippee!
Poor Jo’s blocks have had a dreadful time of it.  The Royal Mail sorting machine decided it was lunchtime and tried to eat Jo’s blocks, didn’t fancy the taste of them so spat them out again and returned them to Jo minus her siggy!  What a palava!
But they are safe and sound now in the January Brit Quilt family of blocks.  I will take a pic when the sky ever changes from grey here!  Just as soon as I get the 2 remaining siggys (hint, hint – you know who you are!!) I’ll get to sewing up the front.  I really love how this is looking so far – squeeee!
