WIP Wednesday - Classic Meets Modern BOM

I'm back!!  Did you miss me?  I was on vacation in September for two weeks, and it has taken me several weeks to get back on track at work and to get back into a routine at home.  So happy to be sewing again.  I was starting to think that my sewjo was never coming back.

As a result, I got behind in my blocks for the Classic Meets Modern BOM hosted by Kelly @ My Quilt Infatuation.

But there are only two blocks per month, so it didn't take me long to get back on track.

This is Eccentric Star from September.  A fun placement of HSTs to get a 12.5-inch block.

And this is Squash Blossom, another 12.5-inch block -- a mix of Flying Geese and HSTs.

And now on to the October blocks.  The Curved Log Cabin is a big 18.5-inch block.

String Diamond is a scrappy 12.5-inch block.  I used the same widths for all the fabrics, but I think next time I'll try varying the widths.

I need to find a better place in the house to take photos as it gets so dark so early now.  The true colours of the fabric don't always come through.

Two more blocks in November, and then piecing of the quilt top begins.  I can't wait to see all the blocks sewn together.

  1. It’s going to be fantabulous! Love your color choices and can’t wait to see them all together! Yes, you were missed. I was hoping to see you at the Sept. guild meeting! Good job catching up with your blocks.

  2. Love your choice of bold colors. They really make the quilt blocks pop and crackle. You get to hang out with Karen??? Jealous.

  3. I did miss you! I hope you had an awesome vacation, and welcome back. These blocks look like a great way to get back into the swing of things.

  4. Looks like your all caught up - love the color combo's your using!

  5. Blocks are looking great. I, like Karen, missed you at the September meeting. I did get to meet Karen, Crystal, Adrienne and a few others. I’m planning my next trip East, lol.

  6. I love the colors you're using for this! These are great blocks and it'll be awesome to see them all together when you're through.
