July's blocks were for Debbie A Quilter's Table. "The Bacon Consideration" prompt was fitting given her blog name. I dove into my rusty reds, browns and creams for this one and had fun with some fluid improv waves. I purposely made one block have more "fat" on it than the other to add a little realism - not all rashers are full of lean, meaty goodness.
We broke for August, then September's theme was Transitions, and Anne Play-Crafts gave us a beautiful piece of art to inspire us. She also asked for a large rectangular block. This was mine:
Flickr and I had a disagreement about that watermark. Flickr won and that's why it looks this way.
And finally, Kari Quilts for the Making invited us to create an Army of Self-Love, a theme I love. These hourglass shapes are all colours and sizes, meant to celebrate the diversity of our bodies, skin and beings.
I've probably said this before, but every month when I photograph the block(s) before sending them off, I think to myself that I would definitely love a whole quilt just for me made from them.
Speaking of whole quilts just for me, take a look at how beautiful my Lake Country blocks are!
I want to make a couple of more blocks, and then it'll be time for me to piece it. I'm so excited!
