I've got nothing new this week :( ! I've been working on my garden, and quilting up those Block Two's for the Technicolor Galaxy quilt that I already shared on Friday.
I haven't worked on any new blocks this week, but I have been thinking about what blocks I should ask the ladies in the We Bee Canadian bee to make for me in a couple of months when it is my turn.
I find it to be an incredibly difficult choice. On the one hand, I want some blocks that I think I will be able to put into a quilt that I will actually use. My personal taste is a bit all over the place, but I guess I favor some more complex designs. On the other hand, I don't always receive useable blocks when I ask for something complex, so I try to keep it simple. I said "TRY".
Choosing a simple block even has it downfalls. There is nothing overly difficult about making HST's. It is the lining up of the HST's together that is difficult! I don't expect everything to be perfect, but everyone has a different level of acceptability.
I made the above block a few years ago for the Simply Solids Bee. Don't worry Ladies, I am not going to ask you to make this block......probably.
Hmmm, I think I will ponder these things a little more. Have you every asked for a bee block that has gone horribly wrong??
What blocks have you working on this week? I would love to see. Link up your fabulous blocks. You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off! This free linky will stay open until the first Monday of next month, but I will repost it every Tuesday until a new month starts.
