Bee, Myself and I #27

Just squeaking in by the skin of my teeth, I have block 18 quilted.

I like this one, it’s a fun psychedelic fabric design and colourway. In a quilt which is fundamentally 30 different variations on a theme, I needed a bit of a bit of a break from elegant florals! I’m afraid it was all quilted at very much the eleventh hour, as I have been hard at work on event organising, and I’m a bit weary, preferring to veg out vacantly in the evenings instead of working on my hand quilting. It’s done, now, though, and I’ve kept myself up to the end of month deadline (just!).

Bee, Myself and I is a forum for ‘selfish sewing’; any stitchery which is purely for pleasure and not to a deadline or for anyone else. The original concept belongs to Carla of Granny Maud’s Girl. To find out more, you can click through on either her blog link, or using the button a fair way down in the left hand column.

Till next time.

    Another beauty and a bit of vacant vegging never did anyone any harm – I often indulge in the evenings myself.

    LOVE the fabric !! How many blocs do you have to make in total ?

    • katechiconi says:

      We each make 27 blocks in total: three for ourselves, and three for the other 8 members of the group. Not all at once, of course: three each month for 9 months. It sounds a lot, but three blocks a month is pretty easy.

      Whoops! Wrong post! I misread and thought you were commenting on F2F. No, for the Hatbox quilt I have made 30 blocks, and now I am quilting them one by one. This is the 18th quilted block, so I still have 12 to go.

    It looks to me like there might be a beach hat in this box. 😉 Well done, getting it quilted in spite of everything else on your plate at the moment.

  5. I do tend to be partial to the floral fabrics but I do like the colors on this one. Another one done and to your credit, getting it done with so much on your plate warrants a little down time. 😉 We all need it and this weird weather pattern isn’t helping. Have a wonderfilled weekend.

      The way I see it, the hatboxes allow me to use fabrics I love but which are too much for most applications. This one was no exception! Have a good one yourself 🙂

      You have to love a little bit hippy, especially when you were there the first time round!

      • claire93 says:

        I missed out on the real hippy days, but I do remember my bell-bottomed jeans and wearing very colourful kaftans that my uncle sent me when he was working in Quatar.

      • katechiconi says:

        I had a shaggy embroidered goatskin Afghan coat and some purple velvet paisley bell-bottoms. What DID we look like?

    So much spring in that hatbox, it makes me happy just looking at it!

    I love this fabric too ~ a modern take on the 60’s colours and patterns. Now that you have reached this deadline, perhaps tonight you can sit and veg out (but probably not 😉)

    Your fabric is reminding me of the ocean at night. Think of swimming in the dark with phosphorescence! Pretty!
