Sew Modern Monday | 11.23.15

Hello, friends!

As promised, it's time to re-kick off {Sew} Modern Monday! My "to-do" list has included "re-make Fresh Mini Quilt Club minis + new pattern covers" for quite some time. Some how they just keep getting pushed further & further towards the end of the list. Which is why I've enlisted the help of my dad, Leon! After 30 years in law enforcement, he's recently retired and believe it or not he's taken a liking to sewing. To be completely honest, he's a sewing work horse -- you can give him a project & in a few days it's done. I need projects sewn, he likes sewing. Win, win! Don't be surprised if you see more & more of him around these parts. I'm very excited to have him on board with Canoe Ridge Creations, making it a family affair. 


This week's project is my Monkey Business Mini Quilt pattern done in crisp black, white, and chartreuse -- which is quickly becoming one of my favorite color combinations. The mini quilt top measures 21" x 21" and the instant download PDF pattern can be found in the Canoe Ridge Creations Pattern Shop. My original version of the pattern was quilted with a modified cross-hatch design and I plan on using it for this mini quilt as well -- it just compliments the piecing perfectly!


I've just marked down the individual Fresh Mini Quilt Club designs to $5 each through Thanksgiving weekend. Each pattern includes full color diagrams and easy to follow step-by-step directions sent directly to your PayPal e-mail address. The mini quilts finish between 18" and 25" square, making them a perfect + quick holiday gift. Keep your eyes open this week as I'll be adding 12 NEW mini quilt designs from Round 3 & 4, too. 

Now let's see your creations! 

1. Link up a recent sewing or quilting project (progress pictures, finish project, tutorial -- you choose!) using modern fabrics and/or designs. Please link to the specific post, not just your blog home page.
2. Please link back to my blog somewhere in your post. That way your readers can join in the {Sew} Modern Monday fun, too.
3. What fun is a party without conversation?! Please take the time to visit & comment on other people's posts, too.

XOXO, Megan
