This month in the Modern Irish Bee, the talented Miss Anna went for a few wild improvisational blocks using this tutorial as a guide. She wanted a fussy cut to anchor the block, but wanted it to be off center. From there we were let to dive into our scrap bins and stitch.
Now, I must have added in additional instructions to Anna's request because in MY mind (apparently in my mind only....) these blocks were to be somewhat monocrhomatic. Even though her inspirational mosaic clearly has multi-colored blocks. I wonder if I picked that theme up from the tutorial? Anyway, everyone else has gone wild scrappy and I'm the only weirdo with monochromatic blocks. Anna's nice enough to take them for her quilt anyway :) Thank you, Miss Anna!
When digging through my scrap bins I really only had two piles of scraps big enough to make a block: teal/aqua and pink. I thought they looked OK as a pair, so I went for it. The aqua block has a Melody Miller teapot as the fussy cut focus point. The pink block has a little Hello Kitty, the only thing in a pink vein that I have to fussy cut!
I squeezed in a few DS goodies, a small bit of Liberty, Nordika (because Anna digs it) and a few selvedges. All in all I'm quite pleased with the result. I love making these blocks, Anna. I could stitch these all day long!
