DO YOU DO MODERN? DO YOU DO APPLIQUE?

The Applique Bee and the Mod Squad (Modern Bee) met this week at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above is the cute little block that Peggy was working on at the Applique Bee.  I love how she is embellishing it.  Would you know this is a block from Whimsical Garden?
Mary Ellen was working on this adorable basket quilt.
We had an interesting discussion at the Mod Squad on Wednesday.  The topic was “What is Modern?”  As you might guess, the thoughts and sentiments were varied.  But we all came to consensus about our First Block of the Month, which Adrienne volunteered to demonstrate.  Above she showed us this traditional stacked coins block.
Then she showed us her version of The Leaning Stacked Coins.  Adrienne did a beautiful job of showing us how to make this block, which was not easy.
Adrienne is so generous! She also brought in a tub of scraps for us to use when making our blocks.  Above, Cathy and Diana sort through the scraps.
It took us most of the day to make our blocks, but I think we were pleased with the outcome.  Above are blocks by, top left to right, Adrienne, Caroll.  Bottom, left to right, Peggy, Judi.  We could have placed them all in the same direction, but thought they were more interesting like this.
This is Diana’s block.  The darker background really made her colors pop.
Chris gave us a small corner in the classroom to hang our blocks. Be sure to take a look when you stop by the shop.  Thank you Chris!!!  And Thank you Adrienne for presenting this block today and helping us make our blocks.

I'm looking forward to our next block in February.  Won't you come join us?

MORE FABRIC, BOOKS, PATTERNS

Isn’t this a darling table mat?  Sue C. made this wool sample for the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  The pattern is called Winter Crazy Table Mat by Primitive Gatherings and is available at the shop.
There are also a few new books in at the shop.  Above is All About Strips and Fast-Piece Applique.
And I have more new fabrics to show you.  Above is Rainbow Tropics by Kanvas Studios.
This is called Flirt by Windham Fabrics.
Above is Blue Bell by Windham Fabrics.
Mystic Topaz is by Exclusively Quilters.
This is Made With love by Kanvas Studios.
I have to have some more of this fabric.  I made a pillowcase out of it for my great grandson.  The Fabric is Monkey Around by Henry Glass.
There is also a panel in this line.  You can make a book out of the blocks, or pillows, or a quilt.  I like that there is plenty of space around the blocks so you can cut them out and not lose any of the block when sewing into your project. 
This is Dinasaurs by Riley Blake.

ATTENTION:  Many readers liked the Green Farms fabric that I showed yesterday. Ivory Spring wrote me that she will soon have a free pattern for you and she made it up in that Green Farms fabric.  If you visit her blog today you will see she has an At The Pond free pattern.  Be sure and check out her blog daily which is on my sidebar.  You won’t want to miss it.

 HEART OF WINTER TOUR is February 7th.   The bus will take you to four different shops.  Lunch and dinner are included. 

ON ANOTHER NOTE
  • Did you get a new iPad for Christmas?  Charmed Liebling has a tutorial on how to make an iPad Case.
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
