A nice retro finish this week. I was Wombat Stew-ard for the month of March and my theme was Modern Mid Century (MCM) for the girls. This clock pattern comes from the Quiet Play 'Sew Retro' series found on Craftsy. You can click through to this $2.95 pattern through the 'I'm a Craftsy Designer' button on her blog.
So far I have Kristy's 'Front Door' block to match with mine but the other wombats are sure to sew and post theirs soon. I love Mid Century colours too. Most of my 'And Sew On' blocks are from this palette.
You can see Gemma's MCM TV block here. She just made it this week. She's getting very clever with her paper piecing designs and may even come up with a fab retro sofa pattern for me to make to go with my blocks.
Lara is making a block of her own Mid Century house! It should be pretty cool. I would love to have a MCM house. I just love the clean lines of the flat or skillion roof, floor to ceiling glazing and the high windows. (I am starting to sound like Kevin McCloud off Grand Designs UK).
Anyone else out there a Mid Century Modern fan? You can find my favourites here on Pinterest.
