modern blocks QAL

In May I saw a new quilt-a-long over at and sew we craft - a group of Aussie quilters who decided to do a block of the month based on blocks from the Modern Blocks book.

I've had this book on my wishlist for a while so I thought it was a good excuse to buy the book and actually make some blocks from it !

I gathered a few fabrics to use as a base with the idea of adding others if needed and got started - I'm using white as my background fabric.

May - follow the leader

June - spool

July - Megan's star

August - quartrefoil
The blocks are pretty quick and easy to make and I've actually managed to keep up !

its a 12 month project so I should have a nice little quilt in April next year :)

oh and they have prizes for linking up each month - I just found out that I won some Japanese blenders from Blossom Heart Quilts - just for linking up last month - so that's a bonus :)
