Monday Modern's May Mission

Really, it's a challenge but that would ruin the alliteration I had going on!

Robyn won last months blocks and set us a 'Swamp Block' challenge. I made one and then thought, why not another. They are pretty quick to whip up.

My first one is pretty bright, so I tried to darken things down in the second block. Using a "light neutral" in the corners, rather than white, made me think twice about my centre squares. Everything came out of the stash. I like blocks like that!

And I have made a start on my next Circle Game block.

I will link up with Lee @ Freshly Pieced on Wednesday there.


  1. I can't believe it's already Wednesday again! Swamp patches look great :)

  2. Love them! Love the solids - it really makes everything else stand out!

  3. Fun blocks! Have a great week

  4. The Swamp block looks fun - great way to use the fussy cut pieces too.

  5. Your MM May Mission blocks look very effective, love the mainly solids look with a focus fabric ...just wondering about the actual block name? origin? L

    1. It's one of many blocks w/o unique names from the Godey's Lady's Book 1858, also published as Swamp Angel somewhat later

  6. I really like your blocks. I shall have to make some of my own so I can be in the draw!

  7. love those blocks... I also love a good alliteration lol
