2011 UFO Challenge #10 Kourageous Cranesbill for February, February 1, 2011
#10 was selected for the month of February to finish in Judy's Patchwork Times 2011 UFO Challenge. This means a change of designers to Claudia Hasenbach. I'll be making her Cranesbill block from the Series "Big Quilt of Nature - Wildflowers". I've got my planned fabric stash for Kourageous ready for tomorrow's lunchtime break with quilter friends to start figuring out which fabrics will be used. This is a 6" block using ten fabrics one of which is the background; three the leaves, stem and bud; and the rest the blossom. The Cranesbill is usually an assorted blue to purple flower with a yellow blossom...but you know I'm going for animal skin prints. Thinking about brown skinned animals for this one since the Lily was black, white and gray. I've got giraffes, lions and more to choose from. More later this week when decisions are made. Here's the block I'll be making. 81 pieces and 13 parts to this one.....a skip in the park compared to the Lily block with 147 pieces and 23 parts.
p.s. I've got a new name for Kotton my Bonnie Hunter Mystery Roll Roll, Cotton Boll quilt. I came across this while looking for a quilting pattern for my Kamel Kountry also a Bonnie Hunter design Old Tobacco Road. I'm really excited to change Kotton to Kottonwood Kurl...isn't that better? Has sort of a melody to it when said!
p.s.s I've got two quilts back from my quilter that I'm looking to prepare and get the binding on for hand sewing. Kotton Kandy Kocktail and Katching Kisses. I think this weekend I'll be getting back 2008 Kruisin' Kwilt too. More about them later along with pictures!
