Modern Mini Challenge

So have you seen the Modern Mini Challenge hosted by Jennifer at Ellison Lane Quilts around blog land?
Modern Mini Challenge
I've been following the blog-hop and thinking.... it's not like I haven't signed up to enough already this year..... but have you seen some of the wonderful inspiration in the blog hop? And have you seen the prizes? Click on the button and check it out.
So then yesterday I thought I might..... and today I came home from work and didn't fancy playing with any of my current projects. I read some blogs and I've been totally inspired by some of the fantastic modern colourful fabrics that people are using.
So I pulled my stash out. And got totally disheartened. Turns out I don't have much modern colourful fabric.... I pulled out everything that nearly ticked that box and found some purples and greens that fit the bill and I've started playing. I don't know quite how it will end up yet.... the fabrics are Moda (purple and green woodprint, pattern fabric) and Michael Miller (green with spots) and Makower (pink) and unknown (other pattern). There may be some applique. That's as far as I've got.

Tomorrow I will have a house full of ladies ready to try another new patchwork block: this time we're trying flying geese units.

Are you going to have a go at the modern mini? I've just noticed the swoon block in your previous post - now swoon really is everywhere! I haven't given in to it yet, but have bought the pattern, just in case. Have you seen the granny squares quilt along? I think they may be my next project - the trouble is I've been over exposed to all the possible next projects out there in blogland!
