Some Bee Blocks

Layers block for Hillary

This is one of my blocks for Hillary - Entropy Always Wins - for Bee Sewcial. Hillary asked us to explore the theme "layers" and she gave us these beautiful colours to work with. You can read her inspiration post here.

With this block, I just wanted to see if I could make that blue triangle sink to the bottom. I love improv triangles, and this one is so saturated.

When Hillary asked for layers, I kept thinking about the mountain skyline that I see from the Gulf  Islands looking towards Vancouver - layers of landscape. And this is my other block.

I just love this bee, it is always fun.

Best,

Leanne

These are fantastic colors and I love the depth that you created with both blocks. And thinking about the block that you created based on layers of landscape: Atmospheric Perspective - it's something I think about a lot.

I do not think of entropy when I am sewing (unless when you mean the mess in my sewing room), but these blcoks are awesome!! Beautiful fabrics.

Wow, this is impressive! It is like the layers on a map to show the high areas like mountains. x Teje

Amazing - I just pulled out turquoise, yellow and orange fabric - not quite the same colors/shades as your beautiful triangle but close - maybe it's the full moon! Beautiful design.

Your curves look fantastic--so smooth and crisp! These block totally make me want to go practice my improv curves!

Very fun to see all these blocks being created. I especially like the top one with the triangles.

These are the colours I am working with right now too (teal and orange). Then my quilting friend started a big pieced wall hanging of a goldfish, also teal and orange. All the cool people must be using these colours at this moment! :)
