I have this thing about Anna Maria Horner fabric--first and foremost, I love it, and she's one of my very favorite fabric designers. But when it comes to actually using her fabric, I kind of panic. She's so adept at creating a compelling color palette and using large-scale prints...but I don't think I'm very good at putting them to use.
This happened with Innocent Crush. I fell in love with it and bought some, and then it sat because I wasn't sure what to do with it. So, when my month in the VIBees came around, I sent the fabric to them so they could figure out how best to put it to use. And figure it out they did!
I know you're thinking, "Dang, she's lucky." You're right.
I asked the ladies to make me stars, and they sent back these blocks. I am beyond thrilled. I have been waiting for one last block to arrive, but I've come to terms with the (very sad) fact that it must be lost in the mail. As much as I hate that, it's time to now unleash the rest of the blocks from their plastic bin and make them into a quilt. I'm thinking I'll sash the blocks in more Kona Ash, but I'm open to suggestions!
P.S. I succumbed to peer pressure and joined Pinterest. Are you a pinner?
