27 Oct Sept Mid Mod Bee
I had great intentions to get this block done and blogged last week – how did it get to be Wednesday already?!
When I first saw Cheryl’s post about what she wanted for her Mid Mod Bee month, I was immediately drawn to this hourglass shape. The barkcloth images she included led me to choose many small shapes instead of fewer larger ones. Next, one large “repeat” seemed to be the way to go rather than trying to do a fabric repeat across the block. As I write this, it seems like I made all these decisions snap, snap, snap. In reality, it took much longer to decide whether to follow these initial inclinations or to head in a different direction.
Cheryl also requested that the final block be curved. The shape of the Noguchi coffee table she loves so much seemed the only choice!
I haven’t done the applique stitching on these yet. I can’t decide whether to match the thread to the fabric, the background or go with something like a medium to darker grey. I’ll probably do a few samples on some scraps before I make up my mind. What do you think?

You do it however you want! I'll take it anyway because I love it so much.
