Latest Issue of Modern by the Yard

Don't you just love all the color in this magazine cover? I know they chose hot pink because it's one of my favorite colors, right? Modern by the Yard is a FREE eMagazine published by Benartex and I have a block inside.

Modern by the Yard, Issue #6
You will find the link to this at the top of the SewInLoveWithFabric blog.

And what does my block look like? I was asked to create something modern using the traditional Flying Geese block. I had used this block in my 2017 Quilter's Block a Day calendar and just recolored it. I have a HUGE Flying Geese folder that includes all sorts of published blocks from my 25 years in this profession (14 years as Special Projects Editor).

Bali Dots was my designated fabric collection. Click that link to see these awesome batiks!

Day and Night Geese is my 12" block. I added the black line strokes so you could see the patches.

And what do 4 of these look like together? Don't you love the spin?

  1. Hi Debby,
    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your block! I really love the fabrics and the sashing on each side really give it wings so to speak! I think I need to pin this for the future. I just won a bundle of fabric from Benartex - I should would be beyond thrilled to see this fabric in it!! Happy Friday to you.
