Modern Plus Sampler {Transparency Plus Block}

Cheryl (Meadow Mist Designs) and Paige (Quilted Blooms) were so right: after the 40 small plus blocks that we pieced for last month in the Modern Plus Sampler QAL, the Transparency Plus block for October came together very, very quickly!

This is the first time we have used Fabric E and Fabric F (the two outer stripes of color in the block).

My block came out right at the desired 14″ unfinished size.

The more I use these berry and pink colors, the more they are growing on me. I’m pretty tempted to make more of this particular block, which probably says I might need to add the Transparency Chains quilt from Modern Plus Sign Quilts to my to-make list!

    This block always reminds me of stripey socks! And you’re definitely right — these colors together are gorgeous!

    I really love that raspberry color and hot pink combination – it is one of my favorites. The colors you are using are gorgeous and it will be a beautiful finish.

  4. Liz says:

    So lovely! I’m really starting to associate these amazing pinks with you! Are they the same colors from Transparency Ribbons?

  5. I’m looking forward to how this quilt will come together. The berry and pink colors are so un-Yvonne!

    The block looks beautiful!

    Very pretty. I find quilting is slowly teaching me to like colours outside of my natural comfort zone; even our least favourite shades have a use from time to time.

    ‘Love it. usually I don’t like shades of pink very much, but lately they are growing on me as well. Your little block is pretty.

  9. Izzy says:

    I just love your colours and cannot wait to see the whole quilt! I’m so behind on this quilt along – I need to catch up!

  10. Kate says:

    Very pretty! Pinks, red voilets and purples are such pretty color combos (no one in my family favors them, so that color palette is limited to my rainbow scrap projects).

  11. These are delicious colors, and I love the design! I’m anxious to see the final quilt, with all these rich hues. It will be wonderful!

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
