WiP Wednesday #19 – Bee Blocks and a QAL

I’m still riding high off of yesterday’s Molli Sparkles Broken Herringbone QAL announcement! It’s gonna be such a party, and I can’t wait to see what y’all come up with. Let me show you a few bee blocks I’ve made recently, while I go and add all of you to the Flickr Group. That was exhausting. You can now take care of this yourselves: Join the Flickr Group.
Why is purple such a difficult fabric to find!? My stash needs some serious purple love. Over to you lovelies, tell me, what purple fabric must I add to the Magic Suitcase 2.0?

These are some 6″ Oh, Fransson! Paintbox squares in grey silver, platinum, charcoal, and pewter. It’s never just grey. I’m slowly cutting into Comma, but I’m thinking I need to do something a bit more daring with it–and soon!

This one isn’t for anyone else but me! I decided to test out my Molli Sparkles Union Jack Block tutorial months after writing it to make sure it still made sense. Oh, it does. Sometimes I surprise even myself! I’m gonna be a total Queen B… and ask my October and December hives to make this. They’re gonna Work It Out–Beyonce got nothin’.

If you missed yesterday’s Molli Sparkles Broken Herringbone QAL announcement, don’t fret–ask a friend because they’ve already signed up and they’re holding your spot. Good quilty friends are totally like that. 

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday!

    I hear ya about lack of purples! I went to a more modern quilt shop yesteray and they had 1/4 of the purples than any other color… Sad! Can't wait for the herringbone-along!

    Purples can be tricky too because they don't always play nicely with other purples, cantankerous colour! Maybe that's why you can't find them, they've taken their bat and ball and gone home!

  5. I have been DYING to do a Union Jack quilt… I now have the pattern. Molli you rock.

    Get your buttski over to Hobby Sew at Top Ryde for some serious purple goodness. ALL my purple rainbow swaps have come from there. Perhaps you need to speak nicely to the rainbow admins and get purple as the next single colour swap?

    Purples are a total PITA to get hold of, I have to say. It's not one I'm hugely fond of, but damnit, they are needed to make rainbows!
