Modern Minx Bee – June update

Yesterday I was able to get back to my sewing room in the heat of the day.  I have been so busy with life, that the sewing room has been pretty lonely of late.

It was great to get back at it.  I managed one ‘bee block’ for the Modern Minx’s”.  We each have a month and everyone chooses a block from “Modern Blocks – 99 Quilt Blocks from your favorite designers“, compiled by Susanne Woods.  Miss June Minx, requested Three Wishes designed by Jamie Moilanen, in softer colours on a light background of our choice.

I happen to know that Miss June is from St. Louis, so in honour of being the ‘gateway to the west’ I fussy cut a tiny cow-girl on a horse as the centre of the block.  I wonder if she will notice?

All in all – a nice easy day in the sewing room.  I hope Miss June Minx likes this block.  I can’t wait to see what the finished quilt will look like! 🙂



I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.
