MODERN MONDAY BLOCK QUILT ALONG & ANNOUNCEMENT

My Modern Monday Block #27.  I don’t know if Lynn is doing this block today, but you might click on over and see what she is up to.  Then stop by Jennifer’s blog  and get the pattern for this week.

I have an announcement to make.  Barb of Bejeweled Quilts and I are going to have a free biweekly block (BWB) for you starting in May.  This is going to be something you will want to make for the Christmas holidays.  Barb is making her quilt in a light blue background.  She said you will also need various scraps in browns and a few other colors.  Check out her blog post telling about it here.

I did mine as a wall hanging and made it up in Redwork with red Christmas sashings.  Above is a little teasing peek.  Barb is working on a button for us so keep an eye open for that.

This past Saturday, Stephanie (Peas In A Pod) and I attended classes at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.   I’ll post pictures tomorrow about this fun event.  Check back tomorrow to see if Buffie made a paper piecer out of me. 

Sew Sweetness has a great tutorial for a Cathedral Window Pouch.  I’d like to make one of these.

Stay calm! Stay kind! Stay Positive!

I did make a block, just not the one Jenifer suggested.

Your BWB looks really interesting! And I look forward to your pictures from Saturday's classes.

I can't wait to see your BWB! I'll try to join in if I can. you know how my life is, though. LOL. I'll try to get my post up about the bag tomorrow, too. I took photos today. Hope all is well!
