My current project is my 2016 BeeSewcial quilt. My month for BeeSewcial was all about direction -- I asked my BeeSewcial mates to help me make a village or city. And boy, did they deliver! I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to share what the fabulous blocks they made, but here goes:
From Leanne at She Can Quilt:
From Stephanie at Spontaneous Threads:
From Felicity at Felicity Quilts:
From Karen at Capitola Quilter:
From Kari at Craft Happy:
From Anne at play crafts:
From Debbie at A Quilter’s Table:
From Hillary at Entropy Always Wins:
From Marci at Marci-Girl Designs:
Roundabout?! I adore roundabouts and am so excited that my quilt will have one. If you check out Marci's Instagram feed, you'll see how she did it.
Aren't these so fun?
And here are my blocks:
If you have a chance to check out the images on the #beesewcial feed on Instagram, you'll see that the blocks have back story. So cool!
After receiving the blocks, I'll admit that I got a little (ahem...very) anxious about doing these blocks justice. I pulled them out multiple times over the past year and played with the layout. My rule was this: each block had to connect with at least one other block, but I could add roads and negative space.
A little less grid-like:
Definitely playing with some alternative grid work:
After a lot of mulling and photos and rearranging and mulling and photos...repeat, I found a layout that I loved and started putting it together. It's just about done so I will share it soon.
