Speaking of QuiltCon, many of us Bee Sewcialites (current and former) met up at QuiltCon, had our photo taken in front of the quilt and had a great lunch together. A QuiltCon highlight for sure.
Now. While my Bee Sewcial participation has been timely, my blogging about it has not been! January flitted by and so did February and well here we are.
Stephanie Spontaneous Threads kicked off January with a prompt about lines and intersections, and chose some of my very very favourite colours - shades of grey + curry + a pop of colour.
Then for February, Karen Capitola Quilter had a really cool idea combining form and function and colour ("Stretch Denim (Let's Get Comfortable)") and oh it was great. My first block was kind of typical of me - some improv waves, some chambray.
For Block 2, I waited until the Bee Sewcial ladies could give me an in-person tutorial on insetting shapes into backgrounds. Success! Check out that "hole in my jeans"!
The technique is a combination of the 6 minute circle (you can search it on youtube) and some others and now I know how to do it yaaaaaay!
Thank you for showing us your inspiring work and giving us some technique information. I went to Marie's blog to learn about her technique on sewing circles an I have a question on the step where you double the freezer paper by ironing one onto the other: doesn't it stick on the ironing board while you do that and thus will it get ironed on the fabric later?ReplyDelete

Hi Myrto - you are a no-reply blogger so I can't respond via email.Delete
I actually don't use freezer paper in my approach but I can tell you that generally, there is enough wax on the freezer paper so it can be reused at least once.
I love that top block!ReplyDelete
Love these blocks!ReplyDelete
Cool blocks. It would be too intimidating for me but I sure love watching everyone else's progress in this bee.ReplyDelete
Such fabulous blocks........you ladies are a very talented and inspiring group, that's for sure!!!!!ReplyDelete
What great looking blocks !ReplyDelete
This looks like the best bee group ever. I don't think a single block has been made from this group that I haven't been completely in love with. Is there a place where you all have kept track of all of the blocks made? I would love to see that!! Bravo to you all, so inspirational!!ReplyDelete
