MODERN MONDAY QUILT ALONG

Okay, I admit this looks nothing like the pattern Jennifer put up last week.  I know I have a difficult time following instructions; however, I did this on purpose.  I think I wrote that I’m making this quilt for my 16-year-old grandson.  He asked that I don’t use any more flowery fabrics.  I figured he wouldn’t want an apron either, so I fiddled with the pattern, took off the top and bottom, added a few more blades and made it into something I thought would blend nicely with the other blocks.  I think it will fit into my quilt just fine.  To see how the pattern was supposed to look, check out Alamosa Quilter and see what Lynn’s block looks like.  Then go over to Jennifer’s blog and get the pattern for this week.
