For snip.sew.send, Robin is having us make blocks for a rainbow baby quilt. She sent each of us a different color and asked for wonky log cabin style blocks. I got purple! It's probably my favorite color, so I was really excited. I added some darker purple fabrics I had from my stash and here's what I came up with (sorry about the weird picture, purple is difficult to capture without natural light...)
Cue Wicked Witch music... da d'da d'da da daaa.
This month, Ruth (aka RuthieQuilts) from Traveling Threads asked for a really fun challenge: Wizard of Oz themed blocks! I had considered all kinds of different blocks from Emerald City to a tornado to ruby slippers or Toto, but finally decided to modify some paper piecing patterns to make some blocks with the Wicked Witch.
The first is a modified version of Sonja (Artisania)'s witch pattern.
The second is a pattern that I've been working on for a while to get right. I took the patterns for Snape from Harry Potter and a crystal ball from this site (with tons of Harry Potter themed pattern) and combined them to be the Wicked Witch looking to her crystal ball. I think it turned out pretty well, although I wish the crystal ball were a little more round...
