Modern HST Sampler Update

It's time to update my progress on the Modern HST Sampler hosted by Alyce of Blossom Heart Quilts.

Unfortunately, I haven't keep quite on top of things, but I do have another two blocks to share.  One more is sitting there ready to be made and another block will be released shortly.  I'd better get my skates on to catch up again.

Anyhoo, here are the two I have completed...

Block 18 is "Ribbon". 

Many girls have opted to make a pink ribbon, but that wasn't going to work for my quilt, being blue and white.  After a little think, I reversed the colours and made a white ribbon.  I think it looks rather effective.

Block 19 is "Perspective".

The colours were dictated by the centre block.  I was able to use one lonely orphan block from early in the process of making this quilt.  Once again, I'm happy with how it has turned out.

As this week was the fifth Monday in the month, it was time to share blocks 13 to 18, so here goes.

It's good to see that they are getting a bit more intricate now.....a bit fiddlier, but not daunting at all.

Finally, I've been a little remiss in not sharing the next photo before now.

When we shared our last six blocks I was one of the lucky winners of the draw.  I haven't tried Aurifil threads as yet, so I think I will have fun playing with these.  Thanks so much Alyce and Ms Midge.

Back to the sewing machine now.  Only another five blocks to go before we are finished.

Blues and whites were a perfect choice for this quilt, and I like the reversed colors on the ribbon block. Congratulations on winning Aurifil thread. That's fabulous stuff!
