Winter 2014 4x5 Modern Quilt Bee & Fresh Sewing Day

I decided to sign up for the Winter 2014 4x5 Modern Quilt Bee this round.  I chose the January 2013 paper pieced block from the 2013 Lucky Stars BOM.  This is also what I spent most of February doing, thus most of my entry to Fresh Sewing Day!

Winter 2014 4x5 Modern Quilt Bee Hive 4

My color scheme is red and tan, with some brown.  It's adjusted some as I make more blocks for this sampler quilt.  I decided it's best described as a real life red and white quilt.  I love red and white quilts, but it's just not realistic for everyday use with a daughter and a dog.  So, by adding tan and brown, I think it's more realistic for everyday use in my life.

Philippa asked for aqua/teal, pink/purple, grey and a touch of mustard with a white/grey/black low volume background.

Kendra asked for any shade of blue with a white background.

Maureen asked for blues and greens, "ocean" colors, with a white background.

Jodi asked for rainbow blocks with any kind of a neutral text print background.

Jennifer asked for pink, yellow, grey with a white, light grey, or low volume background.

Also, in case you were wondering what the papers from 5 paper pieced blocks looks like, see below!

I also made another block for my "Real World Red & White" quilt sampler.  This one is the February 2013 block from the Lucky Stars BOM club.  I'm caught up - just a year later than planned :)  I'm enjoying where this quilt is headed though.  I still hope to finish 2-3 blocks a month to keep on track to finish this by the fall.

Since my contribution to this bee is finished, I'm linking up to Finish it up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF.   It also counts as my WiP Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced for the week, Anything Goes Monday, Paper Piecing Party @ Quiet Play, and Let’s Bee Social Wednesday @ SewFreshQuilts.

Great work. I love red and white quilts too. I have used white in a quilt recently to see how it will stand up to everyday use.

Thanks, now to keep caught up! I also really liked your tutorial on the flange binding. I have a quilt I want to do that on, and your tutorial is a good one to reference when I finally get around to it :)

Thanks for hosting this week! Your wonky pods quilt was beautiful, I'm glad I was introduced to your blog :)

Thank you! I have another white quilt as well - actually a baby quilt. I find the white works well with baby spit up, but not so well with dirty dog paws!

Thank you!

Thank you so much! I enjoyed your bucket list. I may have to move mine from my head to my blog one of these days....

Thank you so much! I find that with quilting I just jump in wholeheartedly, and have definitely done so with paper piecing! Thanks for coming over.

 
At March 6, 2014 at 3:13 PM , Blogger LynCC said...

You know - I really like the tan and brown added in with the red and white - that's going to look neat. :) And WAY COOL bee block colorations!

 
At March 6, 2014 at 3:46 PM , Blogger Heather S said...

Thank you, and good luck with your 30/30 challenge! I'm enjoying it so far.

 
At March 6, 2014 at 4:06 PM , Blogger Heather S said...

Thank you! I think the different color palettes are what I found so interesting about this bee. Some of them are not combos I would have thought of, but I love them!

 
At March 6, 2014 at 4:10 PM , Blogger Heather S said...

Thank you so much! Also, thanks for hosting the linkup. I'm new to it, but I've found some great people from it.

 
At March 6, 2014 at 4:14 PM , Blogger Heather S said...

Thank you! I wasn't sure where this quilt was going at first, but I'm having a lot of fun seeing where it ends up. I think it's going to end up as a sampler of a bun of different bom's :)
