sewn :: super-cute bee blocks (Mod Mosaic)

Twitterbee :: December Block #1, originally uploaded by earthchick.

So I’m currently in two virtual quilting bees, both scheduled to end in March. I have really enjoyed doing these and have learned so so much in the process.

These are my most recent blocks, made in the last few days for knittingbybicycle/Andrea . She sent this gorgeous assortment of fabrics in light and dark aquas and sunny yellows and golds, along with a chocolate brown, and asked for Mod Mosaic blocks based on this tutorial from Oh, Fransson. What a fantastic and fun block!

Twitterbee :: December Block #2

I’ve discovered over these last several months that I have two favorite kinds of blocks – the mod kind that invite an organic approach to layout and don’t rely on extreme precision, and the paper-pieced kind that make extreme precision possible.

I loved this block enough that I definitely see more of these in my future. And I loved this palette enough that I might have to copy it some day.

  1. Those look great! Kinda funny, I have about half of the fabrics used in those blocks, I’m making a skirt for myself with the daffodil fabric. In that exact color too. šŸ™‚
