About modernjax

Hi! I live in Southeast Ohio with my husband Charlie and our newborn son Jaxon. I am a college professor by day, and a mid-century modern design fanatic by night. Well, really, all the time. :-) In my day job I work with pixels, so in my down time I enjoy working with textiles. It's nice to create something that you can touch and feel!

Thanks!

I was out of town and came home to three more blocks! Thanks to Cassie, Nichole, and Ellen!

Where did April go?


Anita, sorry these are late…they’ll be in the mail tomorrow. They were fun to make!

I know I selected a tough block for March, so if anyone needs help let me know!

The migration has begun!

The geese have started to arrive! The first two came on the same day earlier this week:

Thanks to Sharon and Missy!

Circular Geese

Here is our March block. Don’t panic! I don’t have much experience with paper piecing and I made it through this block (only ripped out a few seams) — and even enjoyed it!

On its way to you is a package that includes a template for each quadrant and all the fabric you need (I hope!!). Basic instructions included with a link to the tutorial.

Also, I uploaded a copy of the template with a cheat sheet of my fabric colors, and I put together a Flickr set with some tips.

March is coming

Forgive my tardiness — I had wanted to have your March packages to you BEFORE the first of March…but I will be mailing on the first of March. The weather (and my work day) just hasn’t cooperated with all the errands I need to run. I will be at the post office bright and early tomorrow, and I will also be back to post more info on the block and materials I’ve selected!

Flickr!

Dangerous curves arrived at my house today! WOOH! EXCITING!

I’ve started a Flickr group for anyone who wants to post pictures of blocks. I did invite only, so let me know your Flickr member names and I will invite you!
