Modern Building Blocks Quilt Along: Month 3 - Section C

I know I am so late again this month getting the quilt along post finished, but we have had so many hurdles come up with our family and it has just been a bit difficult to keep up. That said, I am not finished with my blocks for this month, however I finished the 30" block, #3, that you can see below and I plan on getting the other eight finished and posted as soon as possible.  You can always reprint or check out our nifty printable pdf checklist for the blocks and sections in our original "Plan of Attack" post.
Because I am having trouble keeping up myself, I have decided to extend the date for linking up your Section C to 18 January 2015.  This way we can get the holidays out of the way and have a bit of time to catch up.  Plus, Section D/January only has five blocks so it should all balance out.  Hopefully you guys don't mind and I apologize again for having to change things around a bit and for not being terribly punctual.  

As I am finishing up the Section C blocks, I will post a couple more updates to show my Section C blocks as examples.  I will keep the photo link up on this post, so when you finish your Section C please come back to this post to link up.  You will have until 18 January.

Now for the fun parts!  First up is our winner for Section B, which is Peggy Aront. Congrats Peggy!  You should check out Peggy's gorgeous blocks.  She is using Denise Schmidt prints and her quilt is looking beautiful.  I cannot wait to see it finished.  Also, since I made you guys wait so darn long for this post, I would like to also send a little something to Stacey and Susan as well.  If you guys contact me via email, I will get your prizes out as soon as possible.  Thank you so much for participating and sharing!

And lastly, for our Section C prize, we have an Aurifil small spool sampler with six spools of different thread types in red (including Aurifloss) as well as six red and white fat quarters (all are 18" x 21" except for the white with red dots which is a 20" square).  The red is perfect for any holiday projects including Valentine's Day which is coming up in only a couple of months.  Any suggestions for future prizes are always welcome, just comment below.
Link up photos of your Section C blocks below to be entered for this months prizes. Remember link ups will be open until 18 Jan 2015 at 11:55pm EST, so don't forget to come back and show us your work!

Thanks so much for quilting along or just checking out everyone's progress.  Happy sewing!


  1. You're #3 block looks great. December is always such a busy time so I know the additional time is welcomed.

  2. Thanks for extending the deadline....I'm so behind this month because of the Bonnie Hunter mystery, the holidays and oh yeah, a brand spankin new granddaughter! I can't get enough of that baby! I keep praying for a snow day that will keep me in and not in the car driving to my daughters.

    I can't wait to see my prize....thank you so much!!!
