Mondrian-Inspired Quilt Block

As I was gabbing to my dear friend today about a new quilting bee that I am participating in, her response was, "Why haven't you blogged about it yet?"  Good question!  Well, my only excuse, apart for being in England for two weeks is that I've been a little under weather since we returned and I'm not sure that I've actually sat down at the computer for more than a few minutes at a time...until now.  So, here goes!

Back in March, I decided to face my fear of participating in an online quilting bee.  I joined a new bee that is comprised of 12 "newbies."  Sounded like a good safe place to start, and with one block down, I'm so glad that I did!

April's block was to be a "Mondrian" inspired quilt block.  When I returned from England I had a lovely bundle of fabric waiting for me and I couldn't wait to get started.  First of all, I love seeing other people's fabric selections.  Especially when I really like all of the fabrics individually, but never would have put them together on my own.  My bundle included two shades of gray, a brown/metallic print, orange monotone, blue dots, stripe, green wonky blocks, and a green floral.

And here's the final product...

I had so much fun putting this block together and even more fun seeing all of the other bee member's contributions!  I can't wait to see the final product!

So, if you've never stepped out of your comfort zone and tried an online quilting bee, I highly recommend it!

Happy Quilting!


  1. I love the way your block turned out! Great job! I think our virtual bee is going to be lots of fun. Looking forward to seeing you on Monday.
