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.
Smile! It's Monday.
Love that quilt design! That would be fabulous with scraps as well.ReplyDelete
It would look amazing! I dream about Heirloom - I don't know what it is about that line but I LOVE it. The colours, the patterns - it is inspirational! Yeah go make that quilt NOW!!ReplyDelete
I *really* like it Adrianne!ReplyDelete
Beautiful blocks!! I'm going to have to try this soon! :)ReplyDelete
Love the design! I especially like how it looks like the four diamonds are floating slightly above the others. I wonder how it would look if you emphasized that effect? Maybe by making them different colors, or lighter and darker? Whatever you do, it's going to be fun!ReplyDelete
That looks really coolReplyDelete
Cool! it looks like a kaleidoscope. :)ReplyDelete
I am laughing because im glad im not the only one that pounces on my husband with what i was up since the middle of the night working on... very excited... and yep... he thinks crazytown too. Very very pretty blocks!ReplyDelete
oh, that will be a great design. so pretty!ReplyDelete
LOL! I love to share my ideas at night too :o) Your blocks are perfect and very beautiful!ReplyDelete
Adrienne, this block is a stunner, and that quilt design is just awesome! You totally have me wanting to make this quilt. Like now. Thanks again!ReplyDelete
Thanks for getting the word out about the 4x5!! YOU'RE AWESOME!ReplyDelete
These look awesome!! Is this block your own design? I'd love to see how its made!ReplyDelete
those are very cool! Love to see that- so creative.ReplyDelete
Love your block and layout! I would love to see how it's made also..tutorial? :)ReplyDelete
You are amazing! Thank you for sharing your talents. I had to laugh when I read about you getting up and playing with EQ7, because I do that and my DH thinks I'm totally looney. After 48 years he knows I'm looney and he totally doesn't understand "stash."ReplyDelete
