Natalia asked for a simple stack of books block and I've put this one first in the post so it will come up in thumbnail in those blogs where I'm in the sidebar with small pics. If you spot it in someone's sidebar in thumbnail, please tell me I didn't make Wall-E. It's no use. I already know I accidentally made Wall-E. If you squint you'll see him - he even has a little scarf on I think.
It was my month in the Ringo Pie bee and I asked for Design Classics. Everyone else made amazing blocks which I showed you in previous posts but I didn't have a clue what to make. I was going to make one of those old green telephones I grew up with but I thought that would be too hard. I was going to make my favourite car, a Fiat 500, but I thought that would be too hard. Then finally I realised I could make a union jack. As I've made and designed about eleventy twelve UJ blocks, I can practically do these in my sleep so this was a quick easy block for me to do. It was about 4" X 6" but set into a 12" white block but I've been getting so carried away recently with whiting out the background of my photos that actually it just looks like it's floating away down the blog here.
Angela sent us some yellow and grey fabrics and we could make whatever we wanted with squares and rectangles so I made a block I've wanted to make forever, the brick wall block - I also want to make a brick wall quilt but that'll have to be added to the mile long list of quilts I want to make one day when I have some spare time...
And finally, Reene sent out some Hope Valley and let us make whatever we wanted at all so I dragged out my Baby Go and its equilateral triangle cutter and cut a few little triangles and framed them in this kind of wonky random thang.
Corey asked for quilts on a line and I made this somewhat over the top psychedelic block. I'm not quite sure what I was thinking. The trouble is Peg and Becca from Sew Fresh Fabrics keep sending me these wonderful fabrics and I just love them so much, I get overexcited and kind of throw them all in together and perhaps sometimes less is more.
