Calgary Modern Quilt Guild project

Hi everyone, it's that time of the week again, Work In Progress Wednesday! 

I joined the Calgary Modern Quilt guild a few months ago and we have decided to work on a project together.  We are following the instructions found here at Modern Monday and hope to make 8 blocks per month.  The plan is to have all 64 blocks made by October so we can plan a sew-in for November and put the quilts together for next that's planning ahead!!

In keeping with the Christmas theme, I'm using my 12 days of Christmas fabric by Kate Spain.
Block 1 - easy, peasy!  Each block is 6 1/2 inches, with seam allowance.

Block 2 - my fave so far and my DD's...I think she's hinted she might need a quilt using this block.

A slight variation on Block 3.
That's all I have for now, must get back to the textbooks!



  1. Glad you can find time to squeeze a little sewing in!

  2. looks like you are going to be having a lot of fun. I'll be back to view your progress.

  3. To all quilters;

    I am cleaning up my house (we sold it and have to move out by May 31) and found a trunk full of bits and pieces of colorful suede and leather from my fashion design days. The colors are vibrant, and there is much that could be used. I would be happy to donate it to any group of quilters in Calgary who would put it to good use. Please let me know. You can reach me at



I love hearing from you - thanks for leaving a comment.
