September's block in the Modern Blocks Quilt A Long is a fun block to make. It is called Escalator, and is designed by Ann Haley. (Page 58 in the book, ' Modern Blocks' compiled by Susanne Woods).
I wanted to use more colors from the fat quarters ( Stitch Floral Square by Michael Miller) bundle that I have for this quilt along.

|Triangles are pinned along the edges|
|I only had to trim off a little to square- up this block|
|I was happy how the seams met!|

Next month, I'll have half of the blocks finished. I'm learning a lot from making these blocks.
The Pin It Blog Hop is beginning on Tuesday, September 10. I can't wait to see all of the pincushions!! This will be an awesome way to get new ideas and patterns for pincushions....
So stop by every day for the list of bloggers for that day. Remember, my day is Tuesday, Sept. 17 ! I had fun making mine! (Hey, did I mention that I'm having a giveaway?)
