A little weekend sewing

A little weekend sewing led to a finished bee block for Brooke.  She's working on a Mod Mosaic quilt, and each of our blocks uses a gradated color scheme.  My color was green, and I think I may have gone a bit overboard in both adding from my stash as well as in emphasizing the gradation.  I had fun working on it, but I'm worried I didn't do a good job following direction here.  I hope you like it, Brooke!!  If not, I'll try again!  :)

I also managed to make a boatload of tiny HSTs (thank you, Thangles!) that I'm thinking of using to border my NY Beauty mini. Still pondering on this one...


Hope you all had a good weekend!  Happy Monday!


  1. Both look very lovely. I really like the little half square triangle colors.

  2. Oh, I am loving that first block. So pretty!

  3. I don't think I sewed a stitch this weekend! I'm starting to get a little twitchy. :) Love the block you made for Brooke! It's such a cool idea.

  4. Well, I love it! I think it's a great bee block!

  5. i have done very very little sewing over the last week as my mom was here. i am going to make up for it today i hope! xo love the block, i bet she loves it. and i love that happy little pile of hst's!

  6. I love the block you made for me, Elizabeth! Your added stash fabrics look great too. The block will look awesome in my quilt!

  7. The mod mosaic block looks fabulous. Brooke's quilt is definitely going to be a stunner when it is all together! Have fun with those HSTs!

  8. Love your mod mosaic and your baby triangles

  9. Love the bee block! Such cute HST's =D

  10. Oooh, I really love that mosaic quilt -- it's gorgeous!

  11. I have an idea for an HST project, but I think I need thangles. I didn't even know what they were for until recently. LOL

  12. oh it is gorgeous. I think you have a perfect graduation of color. Beautiful mosaic. Also, congrats on being selected to teach at sewing summit this year. I am going for my second year. Yeah for us :)


  13. You know I love seeing my little blenders in there! LOVE IT!

  14. I like that graded block - I thought at first that it was a whole quilt! Lovely!


Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)


Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a very busy six year old boy and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
