Blocks done for our current queen who wanted our name somewhere and some life stories in 2 shades of white. My name's in Dutch postal code in 3 blocks, our marriage for 9 months after quitting smoking (yikes--that took 2 blocks), the loss of my mother, a few blocks just for fun, a few with scraps, and one happy accident. It was fun and always a learning process.

No guarantee my #gwenmarstoninspired #beesewcial blocks will stay exactly here, but this is where I'm going to start filling in and I'll see where that gets me. If you see little bits here and there, those will be some of the 'scraps' my beemates included with their block. And note that not all blocks are squared up... that's just how we roll. Makers are tagged. Wish me luck! #inspiredbybeesewcial #improvpiecing #improvpatchwork #redandwhite #seweveryday

Making subway tracks for @astrangerview and #beesewcial . The red line is done!

This month's #beesewcial theme, thanks to @playcrafts, is 'Home.' For about five years I actually lived in Seattle, tho most of my life I've lived in the burbs, but have still considered the city a near and dear place, and in some small way, 'mine' (aka "where I'm from."). Let me know, Anne, if I've gone too literal. I've noticed I sometimes have a tendency to do that with #improv. Block measures 18"x19". #sewmyscraps2018 #solids #solidscraps #improvpiecing @marci_girl @shecanquilt @felicityquilts @capitolaquilter @spontaneousthreads @quiltsforthemaking @quiltmatters @astrangerview #inspiredbybeesewcial

Titled “Staycation” 16”x19” My first block for @playcrafts #beesewcial September prompt HOME . .
The sunrise over the Santa Cruz municipal wharf as viewed from the Dream Inn hotel balcony. I wanted to capture the subtle color changes that happen right before your eyes. The contrast of horizontal and vertical elements (land/water, pillars/piling etc) was also key. Hope you love it Anne - it’s also a reminder of our MQG charity quilt photo shoot along west cliff way back when 💕. . Fun facts: built in 1914, it is the longest pier on the west coast and visited by 1.5 million annually. .

Titled “Not to Code” 9”x13” My second block for @playcrafts #beesewcial September prompt HOME .
. An improv take on a house block as a nod to the fact that many homes were built as vacation cottages back when it was a sleepy little town people would escape to in the summer. One of my favorite quilting phrases immediately came to mind: Embrace the imperfections. Aim for structurally sound. .Edit-the unplanned pencil portion is a nod to (not) drafting blueprints. .

Found some scrap vomit pieces to throw up (ACK) with my BeeUtiful Bee mates' goose poop blocks and I think it's going to be awesome. Need to get some low volume geese made to add in. Thank you so much, maties. I am one lucky queen. #inspiredbybeesewcial #quiltybeemates #beeuquilts #quiltbee2018 #beesewcial

Scrap pull for @playcrafts #beesewcial “Home” using images and memories of last weekends Staycation SWIPE. The wharf and ocean serving as improv inspiration. Listening to the sea lions while drifting off to sleep and waking up to watch the fog distort the view of the sunrise will be infused in your block - that is the goal. Lots of colorful bits for starters.

"Home" for Anne @playcrafts our September Bee Sewcial prompt. Usually when the prompt is announced I know right away what I'm creating. This month I had half an idea and instead of overthinking it, I just stitched it up. Home is very hard for me to define, I moved a TON growing up but since marrying my husband we bought a now 115+ year old house and have lived here for 14 years now. My three children only know this one home and we have done so much work to it that it officially feels like ours now. Many families have lived in our house but it is now our home. The house was built before the roads so like many churches it is oriented where the sun rises in the front and sets in the back. So this piece depicts the dark of the night fading into the morning light. The light purple roof is the original house, the medium purple was the next addition done years before we moved in. The dark purple roof sections are our addition last year. The greens are our oak trees that hug the house and the back (or top in the photo) are our red sky nights that fade into twilight. A wonky piece that measures roughly 12" x 30" long, trim as desired. #beesewcial #inspiredbybeesewcial #improvwithintent #improvquilt @spontaneousthreads @shecanquilt @quiltsforthemaking @astrangerview @quiltmatters @felicityquilts @aquilterstable @capitolaquilter

Pulling fabrics for @astrangerview #beesewcial prompt of subway maps. Atlanta MARTA maps are not terribly exciting to look at, but I have some ideas to hopefully make it more visually interesting. Still percolating, a bit!

The last of my 'Homage to Gwen' #beesewcial blocks has arrived and of course I had to press them all and fill the #designwall so I could begin to take them all in and decide what to do next. All in reds and white, personalized sketches inspired by the work of Gwen Marston, they are exactly what I was hoping for and are making me very happy indeed.

Paris Metro Map for Silvia @astrangerview. I've never been and didn't realize I even wanted to go until a few years ago my oldest made me a Mother's Day trivet with the Eiffel Tower painted on it. He said, "Mom, it's because you always wanted to go." Hmm... ok I guess I do. 😂. This is just a small section the runs by the tower and the Louvre and of course it isn't a perfect depiction but this is the improv version of it. All pieced, no appliqué here. Proof is on the back. #beesewcial #inspiredbybeesewcial #improvquilt #improvwithintent @aquilterstable @quiltmatters @felicityquilts @spontaneousthreads @playcrafts @shecanquilt @capitolaquilter @quiltsforthemaking

It has begun! #beesewcial @astrangerview
