Mod Bee 3 October Block for Maria - "Story of You"

I was terrified when I got Maria's package in the mail. I've never sewn curves, and never planned to. When I saw her at Quilters Take Manhattan I was like "I got your envelope... you want me to sew WHAT?!?!?".

Anyway, my initial fear quickly diminished after I read (and re-read) QB's clear instructions and visited the resources she provided. She even made fancy templates for us!

Maria asked that we use fabrics that represent us in some way. I love black & white and can't resist a nice graphic b&w print. But I also love color and the way a hint of color looks when you introduce it to an overwhelmingly b&w scheme. Also pink. And pandas. Who can resist pandas?

Will mail this week. Hope you like it Maria!
