Monday Motivation Maggie's First Dance Block 4

Welcome back to Monday Motivation and Happy Labor Day!

This week is Block number 4 for the Jacquelynne Steves Block of the Month for Maggie's First Dance!

Find out how you can receive this free BOM pattern by visiting Jacquelynne's website!



This month I kept my block simple.  I used Denyse Schmidt Katie Jump Rope Fabrics for the prints.  I love the retro look of the entire collection for Free Sprit Fabrics!  With Summer almost ending, it was nice to get this last bit of sunshine color into this block.





I used only four colors of Aurifil 50wt thread.  The threads are strong yet thin.  For thread painting they are perfect.  There were spots I had to go over many times and there was no breakage! Fabulous threads!




Make sure to stop by and visit the other bloggers for this fun event! Say HELLO and see how they are creating their blocks!  Variety is the spice of life :o)

I do really like this block! I've not made the others in Jacquelynne's series this time, but I may have to make this one! It would look sweet as a mini quilt on my sewing room wall. Spring is my favorite season and it brings fresh pastel colors to mind for me. Pinks, yellows, light green, lavender...all the pretty sherbet colors as the earth renews itself after a rough winter.

I love fall when/if it finally arrives in Texas! Sometimes it seems that we skip directly to winter but other years, we have gorgeous colors of yellow, rust, red, and orange.

Halloween is my favorite. Purples and black are the primary colors. Then orange and lime green.

I am amazed at all the originality in the construction of these blocks!
I am torn between fall and spring. The relief from heat or cold is so appealing to me. Spring colors are my favorite and make me think of aqua, red, yellow and pink!

Joanne said...

I love the yellow in this block! You have picked some wonderful fabrics for you blocks and I look forward to seeing your completed project. Fall is my favorite time of the year and of course it is because of the wonderful color combinations that illicit the inspirations for many, many quilt projects. I love the multiple shades of gold and brown and really like to combine them with rich purples.

Geri A said...

Oh boy! That's a toss up. I love spring, because here in the Northland, our winters are so dang long!! Favorite colors for spring are peach, aqua, pink. But then I do adore fall and whenever I see red and orange, I think of fall.

MoeWest said...

Yellow really makes this block pop! Summer is my favourite season. I makes me think of the many shades of green in my garden.

Fall! The cool breezes and the changing of color in our hills and mountains from their greenery to muted browns and reds and yellows calm my soul.

rosemaryschild said...

Living in southern Mississippi, I have to say Winter is my favorite season. Cooler weather-no snow, moderate temps, hurricane season ends with the rainy season, and of course Christmas. Vibrant oranges, browns,yellows & greens of local flora & fauna. Christmas with all its colors, bright & vibrant everywhere you go.

Elisa Caminoto said...

Garnet said...

Fall is my favorite season lower humidity and the glorious fall colors of yellow, orange, red and brown spark my creative urges.

Choosing between spring or fall is hard! Spring has my garden starting with all the beautiful colors after a drab winter. And fall has the rich deep colors after the humidity & heat!

Sue Hook said...

Fall is my favorite. I love the coolness of the morning. Burgandy

Susan said...

Fall is my favorite season. It brings to mind the greens, reds, oranges, golds/yellows and browns of autumn leaves and produce.

kim leavens said...

Even though I dread the cold and snow of winter, it's my favorite because I have more time for sewing. Nothing better than working on a comfy quilt while the cold wind and snow is blowing outside!! I love blues, denims, chambray, with whites/blacks/taupes,, and it seems to work well with winter for me to keep those "winter blues" away!! Quilty hugs right back at ya!!

Kathleen Ruesink said...

I really like the fall season, I love the smell and the colors of red, yellow, orange and brown. Love them.

I love winter with the blues and white with metallic colors running through them.

Jean Fierbaugh said...

That's a really hard question for me because there is something I like about each season. But if I absolutely have to choose, I would say fall because it means football. Reds,yellows/golds, oranges,purples and old gold and blue (WVU colors)are the colors that remind me of fall.

Cindy said...

I love spring when everything is starting to grow. I love all the shades of green as the plants start to grow. Green is my favorite color. Thank you.
