I gave you a sneak peak of some color play patchwork this weekend. Golly it was fun! Thanks for your encouraging reaction =). On Saturday morning, I pulled solid strips from my scrap bin to make random patchwork in all the hues of the rainbow. The blocks I made are "raw material" to fill in holes for a charity bee quilt I'm leading this month.
So I was planning on photographing the finished blocks to show you, but I hadn't planned on it being so glamorous. I think this particular block really does think it's "all that." You see, the other evening when I photographed Aria's Easter dress, I glanced over at the ironing board to find miss hot thing sunning herself in full flirt mode.
and how could I resist? I think she's batting those lashes now.
And over on the table it wasn't much different. I don't think she realizes she's just designed to "fill holes". Like, literally, I won't hesitate to cut this pretty thing up to suit the other quilt blocks. Well, let's not tell her. She'll find out soon enough.
Here's the other block I made for this quilt earlier this month. I asked for random shaped blocks from my bee members, so the sky's the limit. We'll just see what happens...
The rainbow quilt is the project of the Faith circle of do. Good Stitches, a charity quilting bee. I'm also a member of the Love circle, whose April quilt is being designed by Natalie of Greenleaf Goods.
Natalie asked for a particular strip, paper-pieced design in shades of yellow, pink, orange and green. I've only done simple paper-piecing like this, but I do like it. Someday I'll have to play around with the teeny-tiny kind to see what's what.
Hope you like your blocks, Natalie! As it turned out, I did have enough scraps in these colors.
So, what are you making lately?
