Grandma's Kitchen Quilt Along: #4: Half A Modern

We are back from Europe and I'm back in my craft room catching up on my social quilting! Before we left for the Netherlands, I finished the fourth block of Pat Sloan's weekly mystery quilt, Grandma's Kitchen, but I didn't have time to post about it.

Here's my version of Half a Modern.

This week's block is called Half a Modern, named because her grandma used to say she had half a modern kitchen. I drew inspiration for my block from this photo of my grampa in the kitchen of the home where they raised their 5 girls.

Gramma and Grampa moved into a smaller house next to this one by the time I arrived on the scene, so I never stepped in this kitchen. What caught my eye was the Delft design. This block was announced as I was up to my eyeballs preparing for our trip to the Netherlands so it seems I was meant to use some Delft fabric from my last trip to the Netherlands on this block.

I did modify Pat's block slightly. I was inspired by fellow quilt-alonger Linda Kennedy, who rotated a few pieces to make a windmill shape. Perfect for my prints!

When I look at all the block together, this one sticks out to me so I may try a different version a little later, but for now I have lots of catching up to do first!

Edited: I wasn't totally happy with this block, so I redid it. Now it looks more like the Delft is the wallpaper.
