BM&I #46: Parterre block 13

Block 13, and a day late, sorry!

I have no idea why I couldn’t have got a couple done this month, but laziness took over. And mending. And hand stitching the Anemone quilt. And so on. I really love the bright greens, combined with yellow on one side and with turquoise on the other. And the scrap I used for the flower was begging to be paired with them! I mean, they both sing at the tops of their voices, right?

So, Block 13 of the Parterre quilt:

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 of this blog.

Until next time…

    Love this one.
    I am having lazy days too, interspersed with frantic sorting out and touching up paintwork etc. – just in case.

      It’s one of my favourites but I confess a sneaking preference for some of the earlier ones… Next month, I’ll put up mugshots of all of them so you can see where I’m up to.

    That flower looks like the iris of an eye! Lovely colours as usual. I know what you mean about being drawn to the same colours – I go through phases of picking all, say, blues and then swithch to something else.

    • katechiconi says:

      I’m going through a real ‘hot colour’ phase and need to make sure I include more cool ones for balance. That flower scrap yelled at me to be included, and I was happy to oblige!

  10. Looks as though this one is standing tall to be noticed. Love it’s statement. 😉

    I have my great grandmother’s legacy Siberian irises growing in my backyard. The color patterns of the fabric in this block reminds me of those delicate petals. Very nice!

    • katechiconi says:

      The pattern does look like the heart of an iris, but it’s actually from part of a purple and white petunia in a large scale Philip Jacobs print. Perfect for this application!

    You know I love these blocks! I keep forgetting my own project 🙂 Maybe when the summer is over I´ll start on it again!
