I’m Queen Bee again in my Mid-Century Modern Bee, and I know you are all surprised to see me again so soon. We had a reshuffling of months and I moved from November to this spot. Welcome to our newest members; I know you’ll enjoy the ladies in this bee.
Carla, of Grace and Favour, had us all make a block in 2013 so she could make her own version of a Mid-Century Modern Sampler. I loved her quilt, so I’m asking you all to make a block for me so I can have a quilt like hers. As you can see she has both pieced blocks and appliquéd blocks–both are fun to have. The blocks should be in increments of 6″ or 9″ or 12″ (if you do a 6″ block, maybe you could do two?), and would like them with either a text, or a light background. Just pick your favorite block, in similar colors to the above, and have fun. I do have some fillers in the works, just like Carla. Here’s some color ideas (I couldn’t just pick one):
Roundup of preferred colors: clear tones of yellows, oranges, pinks, blues, aqua, bright greens.
Roundup of colors that aren’t my favorites for this quilt: gray, muddy tones. Darker tones for accents (stems, etc.) are okay.
Bascially I’d prefer the palate of Carla’s quilt with light/brights and clear tones all on a text background, but no blocks that feature grey or “muddy” tones predominantly. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me, or refer to our Flickr page where there is more information. Thank you all very much.
I look forward to Mid-Century Modern 2015!
