WiP Wednesday #13 – Bloom Bloom Powin’!

Ladies and gentleman (aka, Mr. Sparkles), I present to you some major progress on Freshly Pieced’s Bloom Bloom Pow QAL. I am so enthralled by this quilt pattern, the fabrics I’m using, and how I’m using them. If I had any inkling of an ego, I’d tell you, “Put your needles down and just stop trying because I’ve got this in the bag.” But, yo, lessers, I’m not like that.
All you witches who scream, “I’m melting, I’m meltinnnnggg…” at the sight of a batik, you should turn away now. Just hit next on your feed button, because I’m about to get all bah-tik up, In. HERE! Ages ago, my patron saint, Grandma Sparkles, sent me a rainbow batik fat quarter bundle that I have been dying to use. When this QAL came along, I knew instantly it was going under the knife. 

I know these look like a big hot mess, but trust, this is the way they’re supposed to be. Following Lee’s direction, we’re basically colouring outside the lines, and then will cut out the shapes we need. It’s pre-school brilliance like I’ve never seen! This is probably why I love it, because I love colouring outside the lines. I will colour anywhere, and everywhere if given the chance. My favourite Crayola crayon as a kid? Chartreuse. With a name like that, how’s a gay boy not to love?

And remember when I said in my Brown Batiks and Tula Pink post that I love contrast? Check out that picture. Mmm, hmmm. Contrast in motion, bitches. Z-snap times three. Work!

Okay, listen up, if you’re in Australia, and you’re doing Bloom Bloom Pow, I need to know. Me and some of my faves want to make you part of our popular group, so can you please wave that sequined handkerchief my way? Thanks, two air kisses to the side!

If I told you that I’m linking up with Freshly Pieced, you’d do it too, right?

  1. So I'm not a batik lover (please don't throw me off your blog) but I am liking what you're doing here! Can't wait to see how your blooms all pow together!

    OK, I though I have quite of imagination but I'm short when it comes to your creations. This is beyond my senses.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how it all comes together. I'm pro-batik so loving all your colours, a feast for the eyes! Just read a great article in AP&Q about how they make it and I had no idea the work that goes into it, fascinating! Batik it up baby!

    I 'accidently' bought a batik for 2 tops I am making a friends kids. I tell you what Miss Molli, it's got the most divine colours in it and it blends so well with the other fabrics. It's just like the inside of a polished paua shell, it's gooorg-us!

  6. Renee says:

    Those fabrics and combinations for the blocks are gorgeous! Your quilt is going to be stunning.

    I'm going to make that quilt as soon as I clear up some space in my sewing room. I think your batiks look wonderful!

    These batiks have the most gorgeous colouring. I think your boom boom pow is going to look amazing 🙂
