Yes, I've actually started sewing again. Nope, everything is not unpacked or sorted out in the apartment but that is totally beside the point. I had to get busy on the block I'll be submitting for the Modern Quilts block contest this month.
The traditional block that we were to work with this month and interpret in a modern way was the Card Tricks Block. I wanted a woven look to my finished block and here is what I ended up with in my test block. If you are interested in reading about my design process, you can go here to read more.
The black and yellow blocks is my test block and won't be the one submitted because it wasn't made with Michael Miller fabrics. I have the submission block started in Fairy Frost fabrics. And am using 4 different colors for the woven links. Am planning to call it "Woven Cards". This block has to be finished and a pic uploaded today (nothing like waiting till the last minute right?).
Voting on it starts tomorrow and continues through the 14th. You do need a Facebook account to vote, but I would love to have you vote for my block once voting starts tomorrow. The page for voting can be found here - voting page. My block should be on page 1 or 2 depending on when I get it uploaded today.
