Modern Blocks

A while back, C&T had contacted their authors regarding submitting a block for their new book: Modern Blocks.  I submitted an idea and they accepted it!  I'm so excited to be included in this fun book with C&T Publishing. 


Now, I know what you are thinking...modern block? Monique?!  I actually used a more traditional block and added a modern twist to it.  The book will be out soon. 

I have been a bit under the weather with a summer cold.  So, most of my weekend was sniffing, coughing and sleeping.  I did manage to get some more work done on the Countdown to Christmas quilt.  Here are some of the pieces in progress.





Hope everyone has a great week!

Goody! I can't wait to see your modern block, Monique - it does sound like a bit of a departure for sure! Funny how we quilters can always manage to get a little sewing done when we're under the weather - it must make us feel better!
Cheers!

Sorry to hear you caught that cold that's making its way around the country, you are not alone, several folks I know are down with it.

I love watching your progress on your version of Starry Eyed, that Countdown to Christmas fabric is great.

Congrats on the modern block selection, can hardly wait to see what you submitted.
