March MTQB blocks

Thursday, April 22, 2010
I know it's almost May and here I am posting my March blocks! To my defense these were sent out merely a week late and I didn't get my fabric until about halfway through the month! I have not gotten my fabrics for the month of April though so we'll see if I can crank those out in time!

These blocks are a modern version of the Granny's flower garden. You can see the post and find the link to the pattern here. I really love the patchwork versions. Lesly sent some Essex linen for the background. I like the feel of the fabric but I'm not sure I like it's extra thickness in the seams. I think I'll be sticking to my Kona Cottons! Which reminds me of an awful catastrophe: I can't find my Kona Color Card anywhere!!! I have turned my sewing room upside down looking for it (not to mention a few other rooms as well.) I can't remember if I have used it since I moved to our new place so the chances are that it might be stuck in a box in our storage closet. Mr. PD joked around that maybe one of my quilting friends made off with it. {Joy do you have my card? LOL just kidding!} I wouldn't blame them if they did!

May is my month for the Modern Tradition Quilt Bee. I picked May because it's my birthday month! I'm almost done with the instructions so I'll be posting a sneak peek soon. I'm so excited this quilt that has been floating around in my head come to life!

oooh! We will have to sing Happy Birthday to you at the guild meeting. FYI, I haven't seen your Kona color card!

Wow! I LOVE that block -- well both of them, but I love that pattern. Must add to my queue.

Hmmm...perhaps the loss of your Kona card is a sign. It means that you should move over to the lovely softness of Moda's Bella -- Ok, I might have just made that up because I'm a shameless hussie and you can buy it by the bolt in my little shop ;-D.
