I've been catching up on my virtual quilting bees over the last couple of weeks. These are a couple of my favorites. Rossie's block for the Mid Mod Bee. If you saw this quilt you know I love this shape. I don't always like it, though. So many atomic shaped quilts seem static and boring to me....all the same size all connected the same way. That doesn't appeal to me.
Rossie calls this her "Kelp" quilt. I never thought about the shape resembling kelp plants. You can see her design plan here. I love the innovative use of this shape and her hand dyed fabrics have such depth. They are truly a wonder. I also love that she asked for a 9" x 65" block. Now that's a block size I don't do every day!
This is my final block for round 2 of Common Threads. Sarah asked for a dimensional block. I think this was the most challenging block I've ever had in a bee. When I heard dimensional, I thought of those folding paper fans I used to make as a kid. I'm pretty happy with the shapes in this one.
A quick word to my Common Threads buddies. You all have given me such wonderful bee experiences. Your creativity inspires me and I so appreciate the opportunities you have given me to challenge myself and grow. You're the best!
