thank goodness for long weekends and bursts of inspiration! Here are my latest fab bee blocks that have been sent out in the mail. These are LATE, but nevertheless I am happy with the results. I was definitely working out of my comfort zone for both and yet I just trusted my instincts and hope that their recipients will be happy with them.
This block is traveling to Vancouver to a member of the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild; I have entitled this work "Vancouver Rain". No mystery why. It has been the wettest May & June that I can recall.
This block is going home to a fabulous fibre artist; this one was a bit intimidating, let me tell you! I was using the inspiration (as requested) of Nancy Crow & Agnes Martin (OMG!!) But I did catch a vibe while envisioning this work and have entitled it "My favourite sweater", as I seem to remember a Shetland wool sweater from the 70's with these colored stripes! So thanks for the 'stretch' Barb!
