It's fun to actually define modern elements in quilts now and then, isn't it? The guild has created a Modern Quilts and Why Pinterest board, if you want to see more.
I keep meaning to tell you about how I managed to get snaps on my Noodlehead Cargo Duffle.
Jacey/jaceycraft shared a mini-tutorial of her HST + 1 block, a block I'm sure I've seen in projects before, but had never really thought through. Click over to her post to see the deets as well as how these blocks will look in a finished quilt - terrific, I'd say, and definitely on my list to try.
Now go check out Louise/I'm Feelin' Crafty's placemats! Click here to see each one close up. Aren't they gorgeous? I love how they're all different, but so modern, and they coordinate so nice together! Wouldn't they make mealtime fun?
I wanted to show you a quilt that was shared by Aneela Hooey/comfortstitching not long ago. When Aneela shared she was dealing with cancer last year, Chelsea/pins and bobbins put a call out on Instagram for 'X' and 'O' blocks to make a quilt for Aneela. We used this tutorial by Canoe Ridge Creations, and here's the post Aneela wrote about the quilt. I think it's a pretty sweet quilt to make to encourage someone.
Another quilt I thought you'd enjoy is one finished by my former Mid-Century Modern bee-mate Carla/Lollyquiltz. It's her Juicy Fruit quilt made from a variety of sized churn dash blocks. Isn't it something? Here's Carla's original instructions - a 12" block made with 4 - 6" blocks. I remember being wow-ed by her palette! We made blocks for her in 2 different rounds - the first we used just pink and orange, and in the second we added in yellow and white. There's something about this quilt I really love!
Whew! I think that's plenty of randomness for today! Who knew I had so much to share?!
