Another challenge

Three things to be happy about:
(1) winter sunshine
(2) listening to a good book
(3) a real challenge!

This morning first thing I put together this sample block of a wonky Jacob's ladder.  Well, here we go...

Is that a "modern" interpretation, but wonky?   I dunno, but I think the block is really really ugly!

Tomorrow my bee has its first meeting of the year, weather permitting - snow starting today and continuing into tomorrow, yuck!  Our challenge this year will be to do a "modern" quilt using stash plus a half yard of fabric that will be distributed.  As usual, the finished quilts will be unveiled at the June community meeting at the center.  

Another view of the block - still ugly!

Have a great day today - the sun is shining!  Sew forth and sew on til later...

  1. I like your block! Maybe the darkest blue triangles aren't big enough, but I think it will be very interesting. Keep going. These things change as you work, and often improve. Keep pushing that idea around, good things might happen.
