Modern Stitching Bee Blocks: January

Just because I was completely delinquent in making my November blocks for the Modern Stitching Bee, please don't think I'd treat Jennie as poorly.  Of course her blocks are made on time!

Jennie choose a pattern from the Modern Blocks book, the Quatrefoil .  I must say I was not at all inspired when I saw the block she choose.  It was filled with dull, brownish-mustard colored prints.  Blah.  Still, I was in bee block making-mode so I started cutting.  Once I made this block in "my kind of fabric" I totally fell in love with it!  Have a look:




I love them!  This pattern was so very easy to follow.  She is going to have a beautiful quilt when they're all together.  Great choice in blocks, Jennie!

Quatrefoil is one of my favs, but the fabric choices in the Modern Blocks book don't do justice to alot of the blocks. Yours are fab!Jxo

Oh my goodness, I have that book and wasn't impressed with the Quatrefoil block, but they look fantabulous in the fabrics you chose! :)

I felt exactly the same way when I saw this block in the book (in fact I felt the same way about a lot of the blocks because of the fabric) but made up in pretty fabrics like you have used, they completely change. Gorgeous blocks C.

I thought the same thing until I made my blocks for Jennie. Her quilt will be wonderful and bright.
