What is this?

This is an online quilting bee where 12 members work over a year to make quilting blocks for one another. We wanted to stretch our design skills a little with this bee by taking traditional blocks and changing them to a little more modern in flavor. For example,
  • stretching traditional blocks to make them rectangles instead of perfectly square
  • or making them a bit larger, like a single block for the whole quilt.
  • or taking a modern painter and thinking up a way to design a block that is inspired by one of their paintings, like Franz_Kline. 
  • or using modern fabrics for a traditional block.

Like I said, stretching our design hats. We are an off shoot of the Block Party Quilt Along group.
