My inspiration for this project is the idea of flowers (and a few stems) going over a waterfall. That should explain my colour choices!
Bee Mates - here's what I'm asking of you (please don't panic - this is supposed to be fun and different!):
Using the fabrics I'm sending you, please make an improvised abstract block that measures 12.5" x 16.5". Cut and sew - go crazy! Enjoy the process!
I've sent each of you a fat quarter of a lighter blue, an eighth of a darker blue, a strip of stone, and a square each of flame and mango. Please leave the squares intact. The strip you can make whatever length you wish and treat the ends however. If you find you're running short of the blues, just give me a shout and I'll send you some more. Please return the scraps to me - I'll be needing them to finish the quilt top!
Some of the blues are very close in colour - that's intentional. I hope it doesn't pigeon-hole your creative juices! Be free with it!
|Simpler on the left - fussier on the right. Whatever you feel like!|
Just to give you an idea of how I see this coming together, I pieced a couple of sample blocks and stacked them...
