Modern Monday Quilt Along

This is my block for the Modern Monday Quilt Along.  It is Block 28 - Modernistic Pansy.  What can I say?  I love it!  I do have a little difficulty following directions.  It could be that my computer is upstairs, my sewing room downstairs.   Not sure what gets into me, but for some unknown reason I seem to be in denial and think I don’t need to print out this pattern.  I’ll remember everything, and I hurry down to my sewing room to start the block.  Of course there are a few distractions:  a phone call, I have to run through the channels on TV to make sure I don’t miss anything, or I need a cookie upstairs in the kitchen.  Anyway, after the first of the four sections is completed, I realize something is incorrect.  I hurry back upstairs, check the pattern, see that I have cut it wrong, and have to add some more of the light grey fabric and re-cut the block.  Then things start to come together.  It still doesn’t look like Jennifer’s block, but I think it will do.  Now go over and see what Lynn has to show you this week, then check out Jennifer’s blog to see the pattern for this week.

Sew Katie Did has a nice tutorial on value quilts, helping us understand the degree of lightness or darkness of a color.

Stay calm! Stay kind! Stay Positive!

I love this block! You did great! I know just what you mean about having your computer in the other room and thinking you can remember instructions. Yeah, right! My memory is crap! ;-)
