CMM May Blocks

Yesterday, I posted the Fire Pit quilt, the latest quilt from Stash Statement, so if you missed it, be sure to head over HERE to check it out.  But of course today is the 15th of the month, which means it's time for another set of Classic Meets Modern blocks. We're five months into the QAL, and my stack of blocks is getting pretty thick.  I couldn't resist taking them all out and playing a little.

This month's blocks included the Crossroads blocks, which are the last six inch blocks in the lineup.  It seems that tiny sewing is kind of the rage right now, but if I'm being honest, I really don't prefer it; and I do realize that while it is on the small side, a six inch block isn't actually that tiny at all.  It's probably why I don't make very many mini quilts.  Give me big blocks any day.  That being said, I must admit that these little Crossroads blocks are super cute, and the sprinkling of small blocks really makes the quilt interesting, so it's all worth it in the end.

The other block for this month is the Double Arrow.  For this one, I decided to use a Kona Ash background, and the teal and yellow almost glow against it.  I think these little pops of gray throughout the quilt will really make it more interesting than a solid white background.

I'm so happy with the way my blocks are coming along.  They already look amazing together and I can't wait to get more finished!  How about you?  Have you taken all of your blocks out to admire them like I have?  I can't wait to see your blocks for the month.  Let's link them up!

1.  If you're a little late to the party, it's okay!  You can still join in anytime.  This is a Block of the Month Quilt Along, so we will only be completing two blocks each month.  The pace is leisurely and it will be easy to catch up.  You can get the Classic Meets Modern pattern in my Etsy or Craftsy shops (links on my right sidebar).

2.  Remember, the link party opens on the 15th of each month, and will close at midnight CST on the last day of the month.  You can certainly link to my weekly NTT post if you like, but be sure to link your quilt along blocks to this party, so everyone is sure to see your progress.

3.  You don't have to have a blog to join in!  You can link to an Instagram post, or even a Flickr account.  Use the hashtag #classicmeetsmodernbomqal on Instagram!  If you do have a blog, grab a button to let everyone know you're participating!  You can get the button on my right sidebar.


  1. Your blocks really do look nice. I wish I could have done this QAL but I am on a mission to finish all of my UFOs this year. It is hard to stick to it sometimes when I see what others are doing! Maybe next year.

  2. Love the teal, yellow and gray! Maybe before the end of the year, I can start quilting along!

  3. Your blocks look great. I have not laid all of mine out yet -- no room. If I ever do renovations in the house, my new sewing room will have design walls on all four walls. ☺

  4. First of all I think your book is awesome. The quilts I've seen so far are so stunning. Second I don't participate on the CMM blocks and I accidentally put my link there (the orange peels quilt). Plz delete it, since I can't. Your block, by the way, are so cool!


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
