New Month - New Quilt - The Modern V Week 1

Unfortunately, August is our last month working on Modern Basics from Amy Ellis.

I have loved every bit of it but, I am excited to start a new book too. I am conflicted *laughing*

Since this is our last month of Modern Basics... You have several choices.

You can:
  • Work on the Modern V which was voted by the group as our 4th quilt pattern - kits
  • Complete any other pattern from Modern Basics - in case we didn't get to your favorite quilt
  • Work on your unfinished projects from month 1 - 3
The most important thing this month - Let's get you caught up or working on SOMEthing :)

Just take pictures like we normally do and leave your comment below.

We have also started the new Fresh Fabric Treats and are going to be working on a few of the smaller projects until we officially get started September 1st. I will be posting a separate post for that project.

So let's get started!

  • Week 1 - Pick out fabrics and cut
Coming up!
  • Week 2 - Piece blocks
  • Week 3 - Assemble quilt top
  • Week 4 - Finish the quilt

Let's keep it going and make more quilts! Great job everyone!!

Don't forget to get ready for The Shirt Off My Back Tote too :)

Pam has already completed hers and noted

"This picture does not do it justice. It is much cuter in person. It would be so easy to make these in an assembly line. When I first saw it in the book I wasn't impressed but it is very easy and cute."

I would have to agree...the tote is SUPER cute! Can't wait to make two for my granddaughters!

Week 1, 2, & 3 of Knotted Squares & Week 4 Posie Patch Winner

I feel like I keep apologizing for not being able to keep up. However, I honestly truly feel a sense of things coming back to normal.

The wedding that took place in our back yard is over and done with, my ankle is getting better every day, and I grabbed 2 more family members to help run the quilting store.

For once, I feel like I can breathe again.

So let's get us all back on track!!

Our Week 4 Posie Patch winner was.... Erin Weber!

I really love how this turned out!!

I keep seeing all these gorgeous quilts that are getting completed one by one and it makes me so very happy!

I am going to try to get caught up with you ladies too but, no promises *laughing*

So let's get back on schedule and talk about the upcoming schedule :)

This post is for Week 1, Week 2, and Week 3 of our Knotted Squares. 

Week 1 - Find fabric and cut
Week 2 - Piecing the blocks
Week 3 - Assemble the Quilt Top

Make sure to post a comment for each week completed!! We will be giving away a Jelly Roll or Layer Cake of choice to 3 different winners.

This post will run into July 24th and we will switch over to Week 4 - Quilting your Quilt.

Information on next month's project - 

For the fourth and final month of Modern Basics, the group has chosen to do the Modern V on page 15.

However... since this is the last pattern from this book, you can do any pattern you want to qualify OR you can also finish up any projects that you have not completed yet.

Our Next Book - Fresh Fabric Treats

I will start posting assignments for our next book this Friday the 22nd. Our first project is small, easy, and should only take a few hours to complete.

Our goal starting a bit early is to allow us to try out more patterns from one book and really get our money's worth :)

You will need the following "Shirt Off My Bag" Tote Bag:

5 Layer Cake Slices (or 5 10" x 10" Squares)
5 Matching Buttons

Most of you will have this in your stash :)

I believe this book is just a stepping stone to so much more. Those of you with more experience will step in and add some sugar and spice of your own. I for one cannot wait to see what you create!
