Modern Block of the Month - Finished

Modern Block of the Month - Front

The rigorous cat testing process
I finally finished sewing the binding onto the Modern Block of the Month quilt.  It is hard to sew bindings onto quilts when it is warm outside because this is the one week of the year around here when I don't want to curl up with a quilt on my lap.  Nevertheless, I really wanted to finish this so I dug down deep, poured myself a gin and tonic, and finished this last night.

As you can see, I had some help:

It feels good to get some of these WIPs out and finished.  I also have been doing a lot of hiking lately but haven't been posting the pictures due to an outbreak of extreme laziness.  I have a marmot picture to share as well as some beautiful flowers so I will try to get organized and share those soon.


  1. Love the quilt! I don't 'do' modern, but I always love what you do. Maybe some day I'll try one. But there are just too many quilts on my list, so it may never happen. I'm glad it passed the cat test!

  2. Congratulations on the finish. I'm not sure I would have known what to do with those modern blocks once they were together. Maybe my assistant needs more training.

  3. Looks great. I think the colours you picked for this project were perfect.
    Love the shots with your little helper.
    I've been suffering from extreme laziness here too. The more I know I should be doing, the lazier I feel :)
