22 Jun 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 !
