WiP Wednesday – “D!” – Codeword for Zach Don’t Read This
So what is that title all about? Well, I’m making a quilt for my best gay friend forever (BGFF–learn it, live it, love it). He knows I’m making it, but he still wants to be surprised with the final outcome, and progress shots will ruin all that business. Since he reads my blog, I gots to have some sort of code word in the title to tell him to get to steppin’! Because he likes the big D, and the quilt is Disney themed, the codeword is simply “D!”
Also, so as not to even give him a photograph glimpse in any picture preview, the first photo is from one of the last bee blocks I have had to make for the year. This is a hooked hexagon block from a Film In the Fridge tutorial. Not gonna lie, I think this hooked hexagon block is ugly. (You should know by now this blog is not one where I tell you everything is beautiful and expect you to do the same). That being said, this block taught me how to make half-rectangle triangle blocks! Which for me has been the most amazing part of being in bees, the growth and learning of skills that comes with each month.
Now, here’s where the D! part comes in. I know this looks like a whole lot of nothin’ right now, but I promise you, it’s gonna be all sorts of animated fabulous in a few weeks. I’m hoping to have a finished quilt top before Christmas, but since each of those squares are a finished 1.5″, we’ll see how I go. The fabric is Lizzy House Constellations with coordinating homespun solids, and I’m working from my own design.
So yeah, D! It’s just between you and me, and well everyone, except Zach.
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday!
This D! is gonna be big!
