This is my Modern Monday block.  I’m not real happy with it.  I think it should be more wonky.  Oh, well, it’s staying as is.  Hope over to Alamosa Quilter and see what Lynn’s block looks like.  Then go to Forty Two Quilts and get the block for this week.  Forty Two Quilts has moved, by the way, so be sure and bookmark her new site.

Little Birdie Secrets has a nice tutorial for Christmas Countdown Blocks.  Check it out.

Also, I thought this interesting.  Penny’s Hands shows you how to sharpen your rotary cutter blade.  Check it out and save some money. 
Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Caroll, I think it looks good. When you get it with all the others it will look great. The countdown blocks are cute. I have some that count down to Halloween. Hope all is well. I'm hanging on by a thread. :-)

I agree with Stephanie. I like your block and I think when you put it with the others it will fit right in. I hope I can get caught up this week!

I agree with Stephanie too! I love it!

Another tip for rotary blades - order them from Harbor Freight, they call them carpet cutters and they're MUCH less!
