Do you consider yourself a modern quilter?  I love the fresh, simple lines of these quilts and when I saw this block in Elizabeth Hartman’s new book, Modern Patch Work, I had to try it.  I love the size of this block.  It was much larger than I had thought it would be.  The finished block is 15” X 20”.  I placed it on the dark background thinking you could see the block better, however, now it is difficult to see the black sashing which really sets it off.
When I brought it upstairs from my sewing room to take a picture in natural light, it occurred to me how nice this block would look in a frame on the wall.  So I taped it to a picture I had hanging on the wall.  I love it.
Here is a picture at a slightly different angle.  I’m seriously considering about getting this block matted and framed.  It gives my family room a whole new, updated feeling.  Elizabeth's blog is Oh, Fransson!  Thanks Elizabeth!

On Another NoteAnna Maria Horner has an interesting way to make circles.  Check it out!

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

I've seen a few other people frame a block and I always thought it was such a good idea! Yours looks great! :0)
