Modern Insta Bee – November (catch-up post)

For November, Angela asked us to make the Trellis Crossroads block in pure white and black. This sounded simple enough, and finally a block without lots and lots of HST. It was nice with a change, LOL……

This being a new block for me, I made a test block in red, blue and white to add to my collection for the "Dear Nina" quilt.


The biggest challenge for me this month was to find properly white and black fabrics! Plenty of the ones I had in my stash were off-white. As you can see in the block below, the off-white just doesn't look right.


Deciding this wasn't properly crisp, I made a new one with 'whiter' fabrics. This is the one I finally sent off to Angela:

To see more of this quilt and other things Angela is up to, hop over to her blog or Instagram.

As before, the pattern can be found in the book "Modern Bee - 13 quilts to make with friends", by Lindsay Conner.
