Bee Europa - Honey bee - May blocks


Bee Europa - Honey bee - May blocks, originally uploaded by soja.

Humm, might try and take a better picture later... anyway, these are the Bee Europa blocks for May for Beatriz.

She sent us beautifully packed bundles of wide strips of the natural and white linen and thinner strips of the Japanese printed cotton. She asked us to make improvised blocks of different sizes, to be inspired by this picture.

I was looking forward to making these, and then sort of got a bit of a block and was worried about cutting into the fabric, but hopefully they are okay. I like the colours, I think that it is going to be a very mellow and textured quilt. The linen is lovely, though a little slippy and thick to sew, I wonder if this might be a bit tricky to quilt.
