these are tiny....
So, first I had to search my stash. My WONDERFUL husband was incredibly sweet and installed built in shelving for me. Unfortunately, he's not quite finished so I've double stacked my fabric until those are available. So with a GPS, and a packed lunch, I started the search.

So I found a great group of Michael Miller fabrics to use: lots of color choices in Ta Dots, some Cotton Couture for solids, and Flock for a nice focal fabric. The challenge this month was do something with the Card Trick block. I kept thinking about it and finally decided that (at least this month...) the word "modern" is related a little to the word "hipster.".. Word association took me from hipster to .....Portlandia. Hilarious TV show mocking all sorts of things but hipsters are squarely in their site. There's a particular sketch where a hipster couple decides to make anything modern or artsy... put a bird on it. Thus, my design congealed in my mind and it was off to the coal mine for me.
