I decided to sign up for the Winter 2014 4×5 Modern Quilt Bee this round. I chose the January 2013 paper pieced block from the 2013 Lucky Stars BOM. This is also what I spent most of February doing, thus most of my entry to Fresh Sewing Day!
My color scheme is red and tan, with some brown. It’s adjusted some as I make more blocks for this sampler quilt. I decided it’s best described as a real life red and white quilt. I love red and white quilts, but it’s just not realistic for everyday use with a daughter and a dog. So, by adding tan and brown, I think it’s more realistic for everyday use in my life.
Philippa asked for aqua/teal, pink/purple, grey and a touch of mustard with a white/grey/black low volume background.
Kendra asked for any shade of blue with a white background.
Maureen asked for blues and greens, “ocean” colors, with a white background.
Jodi asked for rainbow blocks with any kind of a neutral text print background.
Jennifer asked for pink, yellow, grey with a white, light grey, or low volume background.
Also, in case you were wondering what the papers from 5 paper pieced blocks looks like, see below!
I also made another block for my “Real World Red & White” quilt sampler. This one is the February 2013 block from the Lucky Stars BOM club. I’m caught up – just a year later than planned 🙂 I’m enjoying where this quilt is headed though. I still hope to finish 2-3 blocks a month to keep on track to finish this by the fall.
Since my contribution to this bee is finished, I’m linking up to Finish it up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF. It also counts as my WiP Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced for the week, Anything Goes Monday, Paper Piecing Party @ Quiet Play, and Let’s Bee Social Wednesday @ SewFreshQuilts.
