May Mini Report

I can't show you the Modern Mini Mystery Round Robin I worked on last month, its a secret don't ya know, but I can give you a sneak peak of of what I added. And no I'm not going to hint at who's center block I worked on so don't ask.

I tried an experiment with this one, a totally different idea that popped into my noggin and it went with it. It turned out pretty cool, if I do say so myself. You'll just have to wait until everyone gets them back at the end to see for yourself.

This is what I added to Julianne's Halloween See Saw block. I loved her gals in the center so much! I've got ideas for my next round. She already added her next bit and sent it back to me so you'll just have to wait to see what each of us did.

And this what I added to Edy's adorable embroidered center and yellow bordered block. I can't tell you how many fabric options I auditioned for this...Purple, a darker Orange, Red, Straw, etc but ultimately I chose the Green spider fabric and the Black stars fabric and did a basket weave patterned border. Edy has been graciously patient with me for this round as it is quite a bit late (those teacher quilts really did me in for keeping on time with everything else) but it is finally completed and on its way to her. I'm sharing it now so that she doesn't have to wait any longer to see it.

I'm really loving working on these minis. The variety of colors and fabrics and design possibilities is a blast and it is great to get to work on something different each month. The June Modern Mini Round Robin is next (the July one is here already too) and then another round of both Halloween See Saw Swap blocks will come after that. Stay tuned!

Woo Hoo ... Yay! My See Saw Block arrived back here in NM today! Love what you added! The colors are perfect and I like those tiny spiders!
So I'm going to look at it for a few days and then start digging in my huge Halloween Stash to add the next round!
Thanks so much, Michele! This is fun!
