We Bee Modern Too

by Nicole
Last night, I finished up the block for We Bee Modern Too.  It’s the Missing Your Kiss block from the Modern Blocks book

Since we’re making siggy blocks for Kersten, I made a mini-version of the Missing Your Kiss block and signed it in the blank square. The siggy block measures 5.”  

That was my second try at the siggy block. On my first attempt, I made a mistake and cut the squares too small. I decided to turn them into this pincushion.

It measures 4.” I figure you can never have too many pincushions, right? And how cute will that be for Kersten to have a pincushion that matches her quilt. But, shhhh don’t tell her. It’s a surprise.

Now, that’s all done I can ship them all off to Kersten. 

EQ7 training update: 

I worked on the second tutorial last night. After the tutorial, I played around and came up with this. 
Isn’t it pretty? I was pretty impressed. Of course, I don’t know what I’d actually do with it or how to translate it into a quilt, but I’m getting there. Tutorial by tutorial…

Your siggy block is cute and the pincushion is really darling! She'll love the surprise.

The EQ block you are working with is called Arrowhead. It's been very popular lately since Anita Grossman did a shortcut piecing version in her "Rotary Cutting Revolution" book and an article and project using her technique was in the Nov/Dec 2010 issue of Quiltmaker. If you want ideas for using the block check out Anita's website or Google "Anita's Arrowhead quilt" and you'll see a lot of them out there.
