Sew Together Bags and Random Thoughts
In real time, I'm facing the daunting task of basting my Moda Building Blocks quilt. (I've decided that I'm not going to call it 'Modern' Building Blocks, because in my humble opinion, a Sampler quilt is not really a modern quilt. Am I the only one getting tired of everything being called 'Modern' just to sell it to us blogging quilters who supposedly will buy anything if we're assured that it is indeed 'Modern'.)
After that little rant, I'm curious. Do you think the Moda Modern Building Blocks Pattern is modern? The blocks are varying sizes, and the layout is not traditional, but the piecing methods and the blocks themselves are very traditional. I have no desire to open a can of worms, I just find it interesting how we can all see the same item, but interpret it so differently. I think that is one of the best things about being human, the fact that we can all have a different opinion. I LOVE hearing people's opinions! And I love to share mine!
So anyways...as I said above, I'm stalling on basting this massive quilt. It's one of those tasks that I just have to dive in and DO it, or I could find a hundred excuses for the next month why I can't get it done.
Meanwhile, I remembered that I hadn't showed you these SewTogether bags that I made before Christmas. I'd heard scary things about them. I mean, there's four zippers and some fairly thick seams here and there. I was amazed at how well they went together though! And they're so nifty! I think they'd make a great gift, although the recipient must be kinda special. I think these took me about 2 hours each, so I'm not giving them out as door prizes!
