WiP Wednesday #15 – Bee Blockin’ Fever
It has been a bee blockin’ fever up in here, y’all! I have finally emerged from a tornado of rainbows, threads and glitter to present you with some of my favourite blocks to date! I’m not entirely sure whose month is where, when or how anymore, and I pray to the Heavenly Goddess Mariah Carey that they all arrive to their rightful owners. :::I’m lookin’ at you Australia Post.::: Snap.
Have you ever seen so many squares and HSTs in one place? I go cross-eyed just looking at it.
The blesséd Oh Fransson Mod Mosaic block. A request was made to leave our souls in the block, and I think I pretty much did all that with a side of chips. It’s hard to see in the photo, but most of the fabrics on the edges of the block are glittery, because when you’re with me, you’re always surrounded in sparkle! There’s an homage to my Vespa (Cindi — yes, with an “i,” of course), my batik love, my sewing hobby, and even a few Little Apples, you know, ’cause I do my actual work there. I’ve included the first designer fabric I bought (Madrona Road shout out!), my first cut (is the deepest) into my Nancy Drew FQ bundle, and well, I get lost a lot, so directions are needed. Who could imagine a life without blue leopard print, purple bubbles, and yellow stars? I absolutely adore, adore, très adore Color Me Retro, and a little bit of inspiration goes a long way for all of us. Yes, me in a block.
These are for a young person’s first quilt, and he’s super excited by the prospect of being tangled up in blue. (Potential quilt title?!)
Three inch baby wonky stars. I wanted to make more but my acrylic press-ons just kept getting in the way.
Ninja Mishi Kichi and her ridonculous jeweled quilt block x3. Mr. Sparkles wanted to keep this one!
This was another one of those put your soul on a plate with fabric, and they are my absolute favorite thing to do! It’s like I’m in art school all over again and I can boss the Freshmen around, and then go to Frat Parties. You know Molli was popular at the Fra-tern-i-ties. Gliter, sparkles, and Vespa psychadelica–need I say more?
Oh, what would my world be without a rainbow? There’s more than a few seams in this one, but if I can tame my fuzzy flyaways in the mornings, I can tame an unruly seam. Vidal Sassoon ain’t got nothin’ on me!
These are all WiPs for other people, so I’m allowed to link up at Freshly Pieced, right? If not, you can deal with it. Now, pass the vodka.
