So I joined a fabulous online quilting bee a couple months ago - Bee Splendid!
We're only on the second month of our bee and it's my turn already. I really agonized over what block I wanted everyone to make. There are really too many options! But I wanted something that wouldn't require me to buy too much fabric - trust me, I have a stash that needs to be USED already! I also wanted to pick something that would allow each member of my bee to use her creativity and show her personality in each block.
I used each solid as an inspiration piece to pull different bits of coordinating fabric from my stash. It was a really great exercise for me, as some of the solids are colors out of my normal "comfort zone" and I had to make them work with what I already had.
I'm asking the ladies in my bee to use these stacks to make scrappy "Drunk Love" inspired blocks like the ones pictured below.
I whipped up a couple blocks last night. These are SO much fun to make! I love that you don't have to worry about precision or matching points. You can just be creative and come up with something fun as you go along.
This next one is my favorite -
I really can't wait to see what everyone makes with the fabric I'm sending - and maybe they'll add a little from their own stashes too! Fun stuff!
