A Mid Mod Bee block!

I won’t tell you what month this block for the Mid Mod Bee was due – it is too embarrassing.  All I can say is that Robin has been very patient.  Robin’s inspiration phrase was “Mondrian’s nephew was a beatnik.”  She wanted blocks in Mondrian’s block style but a little more organic.

You all know that improv is not my strong suit, but I promise this block is not all right angles!  Knowing that Robin likes to free cut her pieces, I even made some of the cuts without a ruler.  I did make a drawing before I started cutting, but then I cut the pieces larger than they needed to be to allow for some adjusting of the angles.

Robin sent a beautiful selection of shot cottons for her block.  I have never worked with shot cottons before and was surprised at how lightweight they are.  I am imagining a very light summer quilt made with shot cottons on front and back and flannel as batting.

By the way, I did get the Robert Kaufman challenge quilt basted on Monday night and am ready to quilt!

    Lovely… and very clever to add one block of a slightly different green in the lower left – that really adds a lot to the quilt !
