The Modern Blocks Bee

The Modern Blocks Bee was one of my first, and it is now complete. All blocks were made from Modern Blocks: 99 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Designers, which is a wonderful compilation of modern blocks, and I'll continue to use it as a resource.

Stargazing block - August, 12. Stonehenge block - September, 13. Parisian Star - October, 14. Diamond Ripples-November, 15. Piece of the Garden block

For my month last July, I chose Binary, a block by Angela Pingel. You may remember, I made a quilt with my bee blocks which I also called Binary; the reveal post was here.
So farewell to a great group of ladies. I thoroughly enjoyed our year of sewing together!


  1. oh, wonderful blocks, Debbie. and I so love your Binary quilt, your binding is amazing!

  2. Awesome Debbie. It was a good year for you! I find with that book that some blocks are awesome and some are meh, but worth having as a resource.

  3. Looks like you had a great year. I really like your Binary quilt.

  4. Great collection, it's nice to be able to look back at what you've achieved for the year :o)
