The new Sarah Fielke BOM started today, you can see more info on her blog http://www.sarahfielke.com/29/block-of-the-month if you are interested in joining us. There is still plenty of time!
She has just released a couple of the patterns today and I started playing with one of them...a star...
I mention in the title of this post that there would be a bit about my muse...that would be my son.
In this quilt, his influence can be seen in the above and below blocks...bugs. He bought these Australian fabrics for me for my birthday several years ago. He just really chuckled because, well...they are pretty but they...ummm...have icky bugs in the illustrations. Well, I am going to use them anyway...surprise! A smile for us both!
I am so not a fan of spiders but I am fussy cutting them and in they go!
The other blocks are more of my usual stashy goodness from AMH and Denyse Schmidt fabrics...
That text print above keeps me on my toes, there are some words of questionable taste that I have to artfully cut around and/or place in the seam allowance. If you recall if you've been following me for long, this fabric caught me unawares when making a strawberry...now I watch a bit more carefully with my glasses on!!
