First up, a really fun improv piece for Leanne in the Free Bee. Leanne asked for a small colour composition surrounded by chunky neutrals. She encouraged us to piece the coloured section in our own style, or use fabric that was 'us'. That pink Kaffe is my all time fav print (this week), so that's the one I chose to begin my composition. I think Leanne's quilt is going to be a fav, too!
The second block I had been putting off, because for some reason I have a little attitude going on about foundation piecing. I used to love it, and actually did many complicated tiny patterns years ago when I was still working at the LQS. I even use a great freezer paper method whereby you don' have to sew through, and then pick off, any paper. Finally I took a deep breath, put my big girl panties on and got busy. Here's Brioni's star block for the Stash Trad bee.
This quilt is going to be stunning with all of the bright scrappy stars that are appearing in the flickr pool!
