Modern Instabee 2014 (May)

Another month, another block!
I was worried that I wouldn't have May's block done in time, but I'll mail it  today and will just make the deadline :)

Christen wanted the "triple star" block, in pink, aqua and yellow, with the background black and white, or grey and white low volume prints.
I chose really bright colors for the block, so I thought the grey "crossword puzzle" fabric would work well for the background.
I fussy cut a pretty pink flower for the center of the block.

This block is easy to sew, and it's really easy to square up because it is much larger to begin with.
My points are perfect!
A treat after I butchered the friendship stars on my mini medallion! 
Here's the first star.

Now there are two stars.

The triple star quilt block, I hope Christen likes it :)
It would be nice to have different shades of each color for variation in her quilt.
I really love the background in this block!

I never heard from Karen, I sent her the "Painter's Palette" block over a month ago, you can read about it here.
I emailed her to see if she received it and she hadn't!
Oh great, back to the drawing board.

I like the look of the colored squares with their background corners, they look like little crosses.

Luckily, it was a really fast and easy block to sew.
The colors are arranged in a different order, and I think I like this block better than the original one!

You can look on Instagram for photos of everyone else's quilt blocks. 

Have a great weekend :)
