{Sew} Modern Monday is back!

Megan took a break over the summer, but {Sew} Modern Monday is back and I'm excited to have something really cool to show this week.

Chevron String Block

This is a bee block that I made for Charlotte, of the Twelfth Zodiac blog.  I am participating in my first online bee, and it has been a lot of fun so far.  Just having the chance to try blocks that I normally wouldn't try, and fabric combinations/colour choices that I normally wouldn't choose.  This block is a perfect example.  I wouldn't naturally put green with the pinks and purples like Charlotte did, but I love the combination now that the block is finished!!  Once again, as I've said before, I am glad that there are people out there who have colour sense like Charlotte does whom I can learn from!

I love the modern colours you have used! Online bees are fun! And take us out of our comfort zones!

That's a cool block! I'd love to participate in a bee, but I'm not sure how to find one. It seems like by the time I hear about them, they're full. It would be awesome to try out new things without having to commit to a whole quilt.

I agree with you in this. The bees are a great way to try new color combinations and techniques. I don't always love the projects at first but after having worked though them I have usually changed my mind :)

I completely agree. As I was doing the block, I kept thinking I didn't like it. By the time it was done, I loved everything about it! Have you decided on your block yet?
