 It’s Modern Monday Quilt Along and today I have my block finished and it actually looks like it is supposed to.  This is block 50 and is the Orange Peel block.  We have 14 more to go, and then the fun starts as we put it all together.  Jennifer says that a “significant portion” of the remaining blocks will feature appliqué!  Yeah!  I love appliqué.

Check out Alamosa Quilter and see what Lynn’s block looks like this week.  (You might also look at her previous post and see the mug rug I sent her. It was so fun to make).  Then head over to 42 Quilts and see what pattern is up for us this week.


The West Michigan Quilters’ Guild, “Quilts on the Grand” show is October 5-7 at the DeltaPlex Arena.  Mark your calendar now!

Need Gifts?  I’ve been looking around for gifts to make for the holidays.  I thought this Mug Bag original.  Take a look at it on Red Brolly.  It’s a long post, but you can find the link to the pattern at the bottom of the post.  Check it out!

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

This has to be my favorite block yet, I LOVE it! The colors just pop, it's perfect Caroll!

I thought you'd be happy that most of the remaining blocks will be applique. I just groaned! Your block looks great, by the way!
