Woo Hoo, September, tomorrow(!), and it is my month wielding the Stitch Tease crown. I knew what I was going to ask for so long ago that now it my turn, I am busting with excitement!
Ladies, we are making a low volume Scrap Vomit, but without the vomit!
I know the theory behind the original Vom is to use up all those Oh My Eyes scraps that have seen better days, creating something wonderful in the end.
OK, but this is me! I am looking for beautiful low volume, text and prints, maybe the odd fussy-cut too, so it looks gentle and pretty, not full of fuglies and grotters that just happen to work. That said, I don't believe for one moment that any of my fellow Teasers have a stash full of munters, and I trust them!
I made a mosaic a while back...
... just to show that low-volume doesn't mean just cream and white! The one in the bottom right corner is an example of what I don't want. Not enough colour and waaaaay too much brown.
The quilt uses two types of block, so I would like one of each from the ladies.
Here's my first block...
For the cross blocks I would like greys, dark pinks and turquoise, not in solids, again in a mix of fabrics...
All the instructions that anyone could need are on Katy's blog, as part of the quiltalong.
I realise these blocks are 7x7 for a 14(1/2)" block rather than 6x6, but I am hoping my fellow Bees will see that, without any wastage on these blocks, they will probably be using less fabric than more complicated 12(1/2)" blocks require... here's hoping!
I think this quilt has the makings of awesomeness!
For the siggy blocks, I would like 3 x 2.5" blocks sewn together with a centre white square with just first names signed in the middle. These will be sewn together to make the elusive 25th block. I haven't made mine yet.
So I've told you what I want, what I really really want, and hope that rest of the Stitch Teasers are pleasantly surprised that I have not dreamt up anything too difficult ;)
Now to just sit back and wait for the postman, hee hee!
