Mid Mod for November

I am so excited that I finally managed to distill all the ideas running around in my head into something fairly coherent!  Here it is:

I am asking each of you to make me a rectangular block inspired by Mid Century Modern homes.  I have organized both a gallery and a set on Flickr of images that I love.  Apparently, according to Flickr, sets are your own images; galleries are other people's Flickr images.  Although "my" images were all lifted from google :).  Your rectangular block should be in the general area of 9" x 15" and use a kind of outline style similar to my mock up.  I will send you grey fabric for the background and some green and blue strips to use for piecing.

Some of you may recall that I earlier mentioned that I might feature applique during my month.  The image of a George Nelson clock was my inspiration for this idea, but it didn't seem to offer enough opportunity for creativity.  Since the image is strikingly similar to an idea I had many months ago for a dandelion quilt, it may yet show up!

Have I left anything out?  I can't wait to see what you all come up with!!


  1. Fantastic! I am seriously in love with all the ideas people have come up with for this bee. So incredible.

  2. Oh, fun! I can't wait to get crackin' !!

  3. I can't wait to see what you guys come up with. I love the mid modern look and everything out that style. The colors, the clean lines.....oh I could go on and on, but, I won't. I'll be lerking out here, wating to see the designs. Thanks so much for sharing.
