A Modern Block

Our family had a busy,  happy and blessed time together over the holidays, and I hope that your family did as well!

Somebody in my family (I am not mentioning any names)....
got a little tuckered out after opening all of our presents....
I just need a wee little rest before we put our gifts away, Mom.....

I have been able to add a few more blocks to my growing pile of blocks, which always brings a smile to my face

December's  And Sew We Craft   Modern Blocks  Quilt Along block

I used my yellow and orange fabrics, to get more of these colors  into the quilt.  After all, it is block number 8 already!

This block was fun and simple to put together.  

Hey, I finished the top row now!
If you love looking at  FWSQ blocks, you can see the blocks added to my Share your  FWSQ Flickr Group , and view the beautiful blocks being made by Elaine , the Summercrafter ,  and by Amanda, The Patchsmith .
