It is Christine's month asked and she for The Missing U block. However, instead of doing it Rainbow colors like in the book, she is going with more masculine colors inspired by the pattern fortune teller in the book. She asked each beemate to make a block in either browns, creams, black or grays.
We each got assigned a color and I was assigned black. However, I have no black fabrics in my stash. This is actually the first time I have ever worked with black fabrics. Luckily I knew some one who has lots in her stash. So I called up my mom and she sent me a package of black scraps and some cuts off of her black fabric stash. So thanks to my mom I was able to make this block and now I think I like working with black and white fabric too :)
Never thought I would. That is my favorite thing about joining bees, you try things that you probably wouldn't have done on your own. And sometimes you find you really like them. Other times people ask you to do something you think you would like and it turns out not to be your favorite, but luckily you only have to do it once, maybe twice. It is fun to try new things and grow as a quilter without having to make a whole quilt.
