When Modern Blocks came out in 2011, I had it on pre-order, and immediately sat down with it when it came, poring over the pages and thinking of quilt possibilities. When I saw the new Modern Blocks Bee popping up on flickr shortly after, I jumped at the chance! And then for the next six months, I made blocks for my bee-mates. Finally, last July, it was my turn, and I chose Binary, a block designed by Angela Pingel. From my stash, I chose Kona Ash as the background, and a variety of Kona cools, which I randomly sent to my bee-mates.
fourth quarter Finish-A-Long list! I debated for quite a while what to do with the blocks, and in the end placed them in columns, separated by lengths of Kona Coal. Simple.
The gray/black/white City Scenes print by Jane Dixon reminded me of binary code and made an ideal backing. All the quilting was done vertical, straight-line in the skinny sections, and a combo of straight-line and curvy in the wider strips. My Aurifil light and dark gray threads coordinated perfectly.
Linking up with Finish It Up Friday, Finish-A-Long Fourth Quarter Linky Party, and Fabric Tuesday.
