Boxed In

Boxed In Block from the book Modern Blocks
I`m so enjoying being part of the bee, We Bee Modern Too, where we make blocks from the book Modern Blocks compiled by Susanne Woods. This block is called Boxed In and was designed by Faith Jones.  It`s for Heather who asked us to make it in solid red, black, white and grey or in fabrics which would read as solids. Heather will be making the blocks up in to a charity quilt for a pre-teen or adolescent boy. This block is super easy but very striking. I  quite fancy making a quilt from this block myself - in solids.  My new love.

Trying to get as many things ticked off my list before we go to the airport this evening to collect my mum!

I thought this was D9P but I see it's different and very striking. I love
B & W with red. Enjoy your mum's visit.x

Oh, that is lovely. I just pinned something similar the other day. Seems I am being drawn to these "boxy" patterns!

Looks great, even to my solid-dubious eye!

I love the tone on tone prints with the solids, subtle but effective.

Very cool block and suprisingly I really like the dark fabrics.

Looks great! We just made that block last month in a bee. So easy but a quilt of them would look fabulous!

Lovely block! You will enjoy having Mum visit, I bet!

Love it the colours really pop with the dark fabrics to contrast with them! =D

Beautiful! I especially like the wee little black dandelion print square. :) This seems like such a versatile block design too.
