4 x 5 .... that is five blocks to send out to my bee mates. The block I designed turned out to be a little intense sewing wise. First making the strips, sewing the strings and matching all of those points. I'm calling the block, "Cross Strings."
Now that I look at the design wall full of blocks I am really happy with the way they turned out. Maybe it's like having a baby. Once the baby is in your arms you forget about the labor part. These ladies are worth it. You should see the awesome blocks they made for me. I will share them here later this week. I really lucked out with the best hive (don't tell the others). The talent in my group is amazing!!
The next round of the Modern 4x5 Bee
is just starting up if you're interested in joining. As of this morning there were 40 slots left and they were going quick.
Then, I couldn't sleep last night so I got up and played with EQ7. What else can I do with these blocks? What would they look like all together? What about a Cross Strings quilt?
Aren't the colors great? I think my subconscious was still thinking about the BAMQG Joel Dewberry Heirloom
challenge. Kind of wild. The working title for this quilt is "Jungle Stripes". When DH woke up this morning I pounced on him and in a crazy sleep deprived, talking to fast, excited voice said, "look what I came up with last night. What do you think?" He thinks it's a little Crazytown. Hmmm, maybe it was my concept delivery. ; ) I kinda want to start making this quilt... TODAY!
Smile! It's Monday.
