some blocks...

So while we've been talking chevrons this week, I've been doing some piecing.
I've been machine quilting my Modern Alphabet quilt for what seems like for-ev-er...
and I needed some patchwork therapy.

First, I did Linda's block for our St Louis Redbird Bee. It's my first "Disappearing Nine-Patch". We used Kristy's instructions and it was super fun.


My "Field Study" fabric has been calling my name and I changed my mind and decided to do AMH's Spinning Stars pattern. It's a free download and there are so many possibilities with this one.


This is the start of the cover quilt from Denyse Schmidt's new book Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration. I thought it would be a good scrap-buster and I love the fact that it's one gigantic Courthouse Steps block.


And finally, I've cut into my FMF using Camille's pattern Dilly Dally. I wanted to do something simple that would showcase all the prints in the collection. I think this'll do it!


Okay - so back to machine quilting. I'm almost done - hope to show the completed quilt next week.
Hope you have a great weekend! I'm going to see Patty Young at our local shop Fabric Nosherie. Super excited!
