Ummm Brown??

Hey.. Who said brown is not cool???
My bee block that I made for the Modern Irish Bee. 
Yes I ditched the Low Volume charms...( I have another idea for day) and stuck with one LV fabric...Crosshatch in grey which I was excited that Kate from M is for Make stocked...
I knew that no one would take brown when I put up the list of colours to choose in out bee....really I would never pick it too but I was quite surprised when I went through my stash, how much I had of this colour.
So on to the next block...almost finished, and then on to some playing around with my new camera that hasn't come out of the box yet.....I may have to take some photos of the snow today!
Happy sewing.


  1. The block is lovely, the browns work so well with that background fabric.

  2. I like! Good combo - the brown and gray.

  3. This is lovely! The quilt will be gorgeous with all those colors

  4. I think brown has a bad name as it is prominent in old traditional quilts. Your browns are more more funky. Nice blocks. Di x

  5. You got snow?

    I love this block...I'm so 100% pleased that I have yellow, too! This is going to be a great quilt :)

  6. I don't know what is making me shiver more, the snow and gales we have, or the brown (don;t tell anyone that I think it looks really good!) xxx

  7. I'm not so fond of brown generally but I love this block :)

  8. Brown is very cool in that block ; )


I love your comments and do try my best to reply to them all.
