In spite of the fact I have several deadlines looming, I have started a new project. This one I am calling My Quilting Bee. The concept is, after every project completed for other people, I can make one block for me.
I choose the mod-mosaic block for my current pattern crush, the tutorial was created by Elizabeth Hartman on her blog OhFrasson. I had completed a couple of blocks for Carrie from the Boulder Modern Quilt Guild Bee awhile back, and fell in love:
And I created one block with for the Windham booth at QuiltCon 2015 with fabric they donated to our guild:
So needless to say, I have been yearning to create a quilt with this tutorial for myself, and convienently, the Joel Dewberry Heirloom fabric left over from my overlapping squares quilt was dying to be used. This block showcases the fabric well, and is fun to make. My ulterior motive is to use the yardage of the deep purple and white fabric above that I’ve been hoarding for a quilt back.
As an added benefit I now find myself flying through my WIPs (or at least considering working on them) so that I can make another one of these blocks. Another bonus is there is no deadline on this quilt, so hopefully I can crank out a block every so often and end up with a quilt!
Consider joining me in your own Bee! Just choose a block you’ve been dying to make, and reward yourself with one block at a time. I’ll start the IG tag #myquiltingbee for anyone to join!
Progress update, block number two complete:
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!
