Modern Block Tuesday?

I have some bee blocks to share with you today. This was July's String X block for Pam @ Mad About Patchwork. She's making this fabulous String X block quilt and asked us to just make the strips. She provided a few of the fabrics to help guide us and give continuity to her quilt. I was pretty happy to find a number of fabrics in my stash that went well with her aqua, gray and taupe colour scheme.

August's block is for Patti @ Retired to Quilt. She chose Simply Woven block in grays, pinks, dark blues, greens, and purples. I struggled with getting a set of fabrics in those colours that worked well together. Getting the greens and pinks I had to work together was the issue mostly, but I'm happy I finally found two that worked.

I've actually done this fun block before in solids: 

Woven Block

Once again, I'm amazed at the difference fabric and colour selection can make. So many possibilities!


  1. Love the colors of the first blocks, and the little peeky bird!

  2. I love the blocks done in solids. Great job.

  3. That first block is a great way to feature fabric

  4. I adore the woven effect and the colours in the first one, really speak to me. Thanks for sharing.
