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:

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