I have bee blocks to do and the month is almost over. So today I pulled my finger out and got on with my Brit Bee blocks.
Miss April - Ceri; Inspired by Felix - asked us all to do a quick and simple sketch before the start of April and then she turned these sketches into screen printed pieces of fabric. Of course the girls got involved in my sketching so I ended up with four sketches for Ceri. I thought she would screen print one, choosing her favourite but she did all four!
She sent out our screen prints, various solids - including a range of greys - and some other screen printed fabrics she had in her stash and asked us to do wonky, improv log cabins. This I could do, so I set to sewing, and trimming.
And before I knew it I had two bee blocks completed for Ceri.
You can see all four of the screen prints she did from my sketches above. The hat and the sail boat in the centres, and the partial beach hut and flipflop in the edges. Very cool and original idea on Ceri's part. This is going to be a very interesting, fabulous quilt.
