09 Jan Mid Mod Bee block
Posted at 18:32h in Uncategorized 0 Comments
Amanda requested a large chevron block for her month in the Mid Mod Bee. The final block is 20″ square. Other than my usual fear that I would make a mistake and not have enough fabric, this block was fun to put together. (Amanda sent plenty of fabric – it is just me being a worrier).
Part of my uneasiness with improv blocks stems from the fact that I am usually making them for someone else and have a limited amount of fabric. If I were making the blocks for myself and had my entire stash to use, it would calm my nerves. BUT, the nerves are also part of the fun of the challenge. It feels good when you finish, it comes out pretty much like you thought and you did not run out of fabric. I do like being pushed a bit outside my comfort zone. I think, for me, that is one of the best parts of being involved in a bee.
All these big chevrons are going to make a fun quilt! You can see other contributions at the Mid Mod blog or on our Flickr group.
