Sew, Mama, Sew! Modern Block of the Month – March

The next block is now up!

Sew, Mama, Sew! Modern BOM - March

Check it out here.

Intersections

I finished up this quilt last week. I’d been working on it for quite a bit of time… It’s basically the quilt version of these placemats that are in Quilt Scene. The quilting took me forever and I have to admit – while I love the results, it’s hard to stay motivated to get this dense straight line quilting done. But now it’s finished and I couldn’t be happier with it!

Intersections

The orange is a shot cotton and in person really adds to the quilt – those shot cottons are so pretty with the depth of color they have.

Here’s a detail of the back… always easier to see the quilting on the back!

Brrr!

A bit ago I was lucky enough to be sent some of Laurie Wisburn‘s latest fabric line Brrr! It’s so cute!

I pulled some grays (because let’s be honest, when do I not??) and added what is fast becoming one of my favorite neutral fabrics, Robert Kaufman’s Yarn Dyed Essex Linen, Flax. It reads like a linen but is easier to work with since it’s a cotton blend. It’s gonna go so well with these lil’ polar bears!

Brrr with Solids

I made the first few cuts into the fabric this weekend and look forward to putting together a little (boy) baby quilt!

Broken Plaid

I finished up this quilt!

Lots of dense straight line quilting that fills in the piecing pattern and then continues across the rest of the quilt.

Here’s a detail of the quilting on the back… All that stopping and starting with the straight lines takes a lot of time, but it’s so worth the end results!

Happy weekend to all of you!
