Quilt Blocks - Stars, States, Geese and Hedgehogs!

This past week, I've been busy finishing up quilt blocks for a number of groups.  They were a lot of fun to make and were quick hour-or-so quick projects that were perfect for evenings and quick breaks at the sewing machine!

1.  Star Block for NYC Mod Bee:
For the March month of our bee, we were asked to make wonky star blocks.  I used a pattern from Modern Blocks called "Three Wishes."  I love the double star effect!


Center is Kaffe Fassett folk art fabric...love the duck and the umbrella!

2. StitchCraft's Ten Buck BOM
StitchCraft (the fabulous quilt shop near me) recently started a "Ten Buck Block of the Month," where each member gets a pattern and fabric each month.  It is $10 to buy in, and free thereafter if you bring your completed block the next month.

The theme of the BOM quilt is a road trip, so this was called "Road to Alaska."  It is so colorful!




3.  South Florida Mod Bee - Flying Geese 
For the March month of the South Florida Mod Bee, we were asked to use beautiful blue shot cotton fabric and make a block featuring flying geese.  I used another pattern from Modern Blocks called "Follow the Leader."  I love the sense of motion...fun to make!




4.  Hedgehog Round Robin Block
For the South Florida Modern Quilt Guild's March meeting, I wanted to start a round robin project.  I decided to make a fun "center" block as a jumping off point for the round robin.  I hope someone takes it and adds onto the block...we plan on adding onto this until it hits a baby-sized quilt!

I used this beautiful free hedgehog paper-pieced pattern from Artisania.  It took a while to make, but I loved the result!

  2. That hedgie has personality plus :) All your blocks are great. I just might have to lean a lil toward modern from my traditional roots with all this inspiration.
