TBT Modern: Flying Geese

20 Aug 2015

It's time for another TBT Modern as once again I attempt to recreate Bonnie's Traditional Block Thursday blocks with a Modern aesthetic. I say "attempt" because I felt that today's block was only partially successful. I really liked how this monochromatic block turned out. The shades of green look so fresh and earthy. I could make an entire quilt with this simple, monochromatic look. The simplicity of it really appeals to me. Now this block is an entirely different story! I mean, what was I thinking? I thought I was really clever flipping the blocks around to ... ...read more

TBT Modern: Ohio Star

06 Aug 2015

I am pretty crazy about today's TBT Modern quilt block! Today, Bonnie is showing us how to make the Ohio Star (just one of it's many names). As I started looking at the block, along with the alternate ideas at the end of the post, I realized how versatile this block could be. Bonnie shows us a lovely traditional version using just two fabrics from the Penny Rose Isabella collection. I loved her images at the end showing options for multiple colors, so I opted to make two versions. The first version features Tea Dye, Teddy Bear, Seafoam ... ...read more

05 Aug 2015

Hey y'all - Melissa from Melly Sews here. I don't know about the weather where you are, but here in Texas it's still hot, hot, hot, and I don't care if the stores all have fall clothing, I won't be able to wear that for a couple months still. So I made this transitional tunic, which also happens to be a super easy sew. To make this, you'll need two pieces of knit fabric that are about 30 inches long and 1.5 times your hip measurement. (*Note: if you are very busty and your ... ...read more
