WIPW #6 - CMM Catch Up

Now that the quilt commissioned by the Friends of Letchworth State Park is (finally) done, I've (finally) had time to work on some other projects. Really the only non-FLSPQ sewing I did in the last few months was SMQ 3 bee blocks. Since finishing the FLSPQ I've also finished my SMQ 3 quilt, Blue on Brown, and worked on some small projects like pin cushions and coasters for some craft shows this summer.  The only WIP I've had a chance to work on is the Classic Meets Modern QAL. I have to say that I have really been enjoying this QAL.  Erin has been doing a great job putting a modern twist on some super traditional (read: awesome) blocks. Here are my versions:

February - Amethyst Blocks

March - Drunkard's Path Blocks 

April - Brown Goose/Double Z Blocks

May - Dresden Plate Blocks

June - Log Cabin Blocks - whoops! Still not done yet!

I would like to be caught on with the CMM by July 1st when the next block comes out but I honestly can't guarantee it. Right now I have 10 blocks completed out of 24 total blocks - 12 of which have been 'released'. So I'm not that far behind actually. I'm really looking forward to the next 6 block designs (:

  1. You'll catch up in no time! Looks good - love the solids!

    1. Thanks, Nicole. I am loving the solids as well :D

  2. Love your use of colour! The drunkard's path you have done is very impressive. Well done!

    1. Aww, thanks Taryn! That block was pretty intense. For the most part I am really having a lot of fun with the colors. Thanks for visiting (:

  3. Looks like a fun set of blocks! Log cabins are quick, you'll catch up in no time I'm sure.

  4. Thanks, Lisa! At the end of the day, I'm taking my time to enjoy each block, and that's what really matters. I've been eyeing these logs cabins ( at Ellison Lane so we're getting closer to actual stitching, ha ha (:
