I have chosen my block- months ago- and been hunting up fabrics, as I have to send some fabric out, so my bee mates have something to start them off. They will make one block, 12.5" square, or equivalent, and return that to me.
I have chosen, this:
It is a floating stars block, which, in my head, is bright colours on black backgrounds. But I wanted black which was not dead black, I want the blocks to sing! I also am asking for the central star to be in one colour. They may choose which one colour, be it blue, green, yellow, whatever, but that centre should be one, and then the rest, bright cheerful singing anythings.
Do you know just how difficult it is to find tone on tone black? It is a good thing I started hunting early. I eventually obtained 5 different prints, and the central black square is a plain black. Each black square is 4.5", and then the corners are made from 2.5" squares which use up all those grotty little scrappy bits which are too big to throw away, but too small to be really useful. You know the ones.
So, I had an array like this,
which soon turned into this,
which then became this!
You see how chaos intrudes?
And all these got posted this morning... ready for May.
