Mod Mosaics

Here are blocks 7 and 8 for my swap. We are making them in groups of 5 and I signed up to make 15 but I like them so much I may make 20 to swap and 5 for myself and make a 5x5 square. So thankful I have till the end of the month to get them all made.

 Here is my favorite part of the top lock. I keep the leftovers when I cut out my dresdens. Love how this modern midwest looks with the white.

Time flies while life happens.

Well the past couple weeks have been so crazy busy. With work and the hubby going back to work, H's school and getting time in my mind to adjust to the fact I will soon be a mommy to a pre teen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just dealing with the everyday drama my family comes with too. I'm so blessed to have them all in my life but I'm even more blessed to be able to have an scape when it gets t be tomuch. That's right sewing. I have been finishing up some projects I have been working on for years not to mention the adding of new ones. Today I have blocks 6 and 7 of the block of the month that our friend gave me.

Block of the Month 5

I really am having a good time making these. I always wanted to do some of these traditional blocks but this reall took the guess work out of it. Not to mention the fact that I can do these and I have the patterns so I can do them in a fabric I really like at a later date, I'm kinda thinking I will put thise together when it's done and give it to my grandmother. I think when you do quilt you don't really recieve quilts.

Mod Mosiac blocks 4, 5,6

Not much to say about it but here they are. These are really fun to make now that I got the hang of it. The best part of it is being in a swap so you get a wider variety of fabrics.

Modern Mosaics blocks 2 and 3

Well I'm here to say they definately get easier as you go. It's really kind nice to see some of these scraps again and think about the quilts or projects I have made with the fabric. We'll enough with the sentimentals and on with the blocks.

Block 4

Here is block four. I'm not sure how I will finish this quilt of since all I have are the blocks and the date on the back is from 2002. I suppose I should worry about that later. So without further ado.................BLOCK 4!!

My new camera bag.....

My hubby and I bought a camera bag for our camera. I actually think he was tired of me shoving it in my purse and was scared it would get scratched up. It's your basic bag bag until I took a ton of scraps and made a scrap holder for the strap.
