This high must be coming from some very intensive days with the Scrappy? Sew bee it! It is so much fun and I spend my time, nose glued to:
1. my blog
2. my emails
just waiting for whats coming up next. This waggon is rolling nicely, but there are still heaps of fun ahead of us. I'll keep you posted.
I kind of regret that this adventure will come to an end all too soon (in one year) and wanting mooore! Now!!!
I did try a cold shower (27° C), but it didn't really help. When did it ever do? Sorry, sidetracking.
Another thing just whooping around my brain was what to do with these great fabrics.
So it hit me. Why not start another bee with theme of the blocks the country/city we are coming from? This one would be a sampler quilt, if possible a scrappy one, free use of size (12 1/2" limit).
You could use fabrics like the above, or use anything you have to make something that is just that thing from your place, or life. I'm thinking perhaps something royal from England, Aboriginal style for Australia, skyscrapers for NY, midsommer wreaths for Sweden...Your ideas will be far better than mine.
This cute bugger is just begging to be transformed into a teacup! Isn't it?
Obviously I would myself be in very hot water, not really knowing what to make :-) Mosquitos, perhaps I should make some mosquitos. An icehockey puck, or snow in a winter landscape...
You could quilt or stitch, or a combination of both, as long as your block tells, yes this is a part of me. This is where I come from or this is what I am/love.
The idea is that you make 12 blocks from your own part of the world and send them to the others in the group. One block a month. These 12 blocks don't necessesarily have all to be the same motiv. They could all be different, all according to your own wishes. Queen bee of the month would choose the colour line and background fabric to make sure the quilt will somehow shape up.
At the end of the year you would end up with a wonderful sampler quilt, full of fond memories of friends. I would love to snuggle up in one!
Anyone interested? Please, please say yes!!
