At the beginning of the year I stumbled across a great block of the month starting up over at Gen X Quilters. It is named the Sister's Ten Modern Block of the Month and the finished quilt was presented right up front, no surprises here. Perfect, I knew what I was getting into! So I dug through my fabric stash and pulled these wonderful fat quarters from designer Melissa Averinos, the line is named Swoon. I added in Kona Snow and got ready to start making these blocks. Each month a new pattern is released, and you make two blocks from the same pattern, just different fabric placement for each. I am making the 12" version, which will result in a large twin size quilt.
January's blocks are named Grandmother's Frame and had quite a few half square triangles, but it was simple enough. I love how this block features a rather large fussy cut center.
February's block is named Susannah and the construction of this block was pretty simple and quick. I love how different each of my blocks look!
I have been keeping up with this block of the month so far, I just forgot to take pictures until recently. I haven't done March yet, but I think I still have some time! If you want to follow along and see a TON of great block made by others, you can visit the Flickr group HERE.

Great job Marci! All of your blocks look so lovely - such rich colors in them. Thanks for playing along - I just love to see what others do with the same patterns each month. AM
