plaid

september was parikha’s month in pollen8. notice it’s november and I’m finally showing these. we’ve gotten a little behind in our bee and I take full responsibility. no one told me that asking for improv blocks would place fear in everyone’s heart. I’ve gotten a couple of blocks back from my month, but everyone else is hiding from me. 🙂
when parikha told us she wanted plaid blocks, I had no idea what she meant and I got a little scared. she thankfully sent us a little sketch with do’s and don’ts and I got to it. I love all the fabric and colors she sent. I had fun spacing out the stripes and playing with different thicknesses (why does that sound dirty?). I think the orange one is my favorite because the large print really works with the solid stripes. I can’t wait to see this quilt come together and finally see the plaid effect she’s going for.

    I love your silk things… and these too. I find it so funny that silk ends up on your DOG! I think it was about the time somethings work that way…

    I LOVE love love love LOVE the last block. Just adore everything about it.
    In fact I want a full-sized copy of that last block for my bed.
    Did I mention that I love it? Cuz I do.

    I love the blue one, and I am trying to tell myself that it is for a more compelling reason than I love the color blue (because I like all of the colors used).
