Modern BOM

I really loved doing the Modern BOM on Sew Mama Sew.

It was such a fun sampler and really helped me to think outside of the box. I finished this baby, but haven't had the chance to quilt it just yet. I have about three tops finished and just need to quilt them. Hopefully after the holidays I can get right on that :) 
I wasn't a big fan of the improv block so I tried my hand at paper piecing. My friend Diane From the Blank Pages is an amazing paper piecer :) and pattern maker. I loved her Double Star Pattern and she has a fantastic step by step tutorial for it. It really made paper piecing not so scary. I'm super excited because I get to see her in a few days - I can't wait :) I made some great friends at the The Sewing Summit and she was one of them and our roomie. 

Here Is The Finished Top 
I would love to turn several of these blocks into quilts of their own. someday. 

I hope you guys are having a wonderful and Joyful Holiday!!
