HOLY COW - I got some crafting done this month!

June 29th, 2009

Bunny Hill Designs/Anne Sutton’s uber darling “A Tisket, A Tasket” blocks of the month for May and June.  MAY and JUNE!  I’m late AGAIN to the party.  I’m somewhat prepared for the delights Anne gift’s us each month, but I don’t really know what Swell/Sweet fabrics I’m going to use until I see the block. A part of me imagines myself in a beret and looking at the block pattern through my thumbs and index fingers, glass of wine near-by. But that would be way too pretentious. So I opt for just the wine.

My lighting is sucky and makes the Moda Dotty butter yellow look like some funky seafood chowder yellow. You’ll just have to trust me, IRL the colors are FANTASTIC.
Dude, Where's My Cocoon?

Each of my months with more info… January, February, March, April and May & June.

    Just incredibly stinkin’ cute! I soooooo love your version. But that is not surprising you are just the incredibly talented Monica. I love everything you do!! You go girl!!! Have another glass of wine.

  12. The fabulous deb allegedly said:

    oH MY GOODNESS! I have to confess I didn’t do this block of the month but looking at yours makes me wish I had. Oh but it would not have looked like yours… i’m speechless. It’s so beautiful!

  13. The fabulous Carri allegedly said:

    wow - those are incredible. I don’t have the foggiest idea how to do what you did. Where did you learn that (and please don’t say you just figured it out). I really love the way they pop. It is just amazing! It gives your work that extra oomph!


  14. The fabulous Thimbleanna allegedly said:

    Holy Cow is right! There’s some serious hyperventilation going on over way back here — those blocks are fantastic! They’re my very favoriteist (that’s a word if I say so!) blocks ANYwhere in blogland. As always, you’re #1!!!!

  15. The fabulous elizabeth allegedly said:

    Too stinkin’ cute for words!

  16. The fabulous Paula allegedly said:

    Aw! There just so sweet! I’m late to the party myself. May’s done, but I have yet to start on June’s. Can’t rush right into these things you know, they have to simmer a little…

  17. The fabulous Mary allegedly said:

    That yellow dotty background always makes me second guess the fact that I have a different background on each block. Putting my quilt together will be … interesting. Putting yours together is clearly going to be a rip-roaring good time!

  18. The fabulous Janet allegedly said:

    How gorgeous the blocks are. I especially love your touch for embelishment.

  19. The fabulous AnyoneCanQuilt allegedly said:

    They’re gorgeous!!! Dang it, why didn’t I stick some of those blocks in my purse… By the way, we took off PP’s purple jumpsuit and can’t get it back on, it’s so tight I can’t see how they got it on in the first place!! She was quite indecent until Pricilla lent her an outfit. I guess I just need to make her a new wardrobe! xx

  20. The fabulous Jan allegedly said:

    Your blocks are really pretty! I love the color and print combinations!

  21. The fabulous Page allegedly said:

    This is going to be one beautiful quilt. You are doing an awesome job and the colors look great on my computer. I can’t wait to see it finished!

  22. The fabulous cindy allegedly said:

    Hey, I’m late to the party too! :) I haven’t started May and June? What the….It’s already almost July. I’ve got to get my sewing room set up TODAY! :)

    Your blocks are adorable, as usual. I’m pretty sure even if you made something you thought was ugly, we’d all swoon over it! :) Those colors are so super cute.

  23. The fabulous Dorothy allegedly said:

    I love your fabric choices for these blocks, Monica. The quilt is going to be so bright and cheery. Thanks for sharing the photos with us.

  24. The fabulous SuzK allegedly said:

  28. The fabulous pam allegedly said:

    I love your version the most. Ever. Those daisies kill me. seriously.
    Why don’t I have tons of sweet leftover so I can make this?

  29. The fabulous MichelleB allegedly said:

    They are adorable! I love them.

  30. The fabulous nanette allegedly said:

    You are right the lighting doesn’t show the beautiful buttery feel of the fabric. But let me tell you I wasn’t looking at the background color until you said something. If I was a screamer I’d be screaming like that lady on so you think you can dance Mary Murphy and telling you that your block is on the whatever train she screams. Incredibly beautiful.

  31. The fabulous Sandy B allegedly said:

    Your blocks are absolutley great! You are a master…

  32. The fabulous Sharon allegedly said:

    Those blocks are to die for Monica. Great job. I cant wait to see that quilt finished.

    I love the fabrics, and the yellow dot is perfect, of course!

  34. The fabulous Duabe allegedly said:

    The way you used felt, rick-rack and little flowers all combine to make very pretty and very imaginative baskets.

    Someplace in my stash are the perfect fabrics for these blocks. Now if only I could find them….

  35. The fabulous Alice allegedly said:

    I love the baskets! I’ve been saving the patterns and thus far have not started with Block One! I’m terribly late for the party! One day …I will start these adorable blocks!

  36. The fabulous Mary Anne Drury allegedly said:

    Pea soup flashbacks !!!!!!! I’m having pea soup flashbacks !!!!! I was forced to eat an entire bowl of pea soup that color by a nun in the cafeteria of a St. Peter and Paul’s school when I was in first grade ……

    Anyhow ….. your quilt blocks are UNBEARABLY CUTE !!!!(when I envision them in their natural un- pea soup color)

  43. The fabulous Tara allegedly said:

    I just wanted to write to say your blocks are just amazing! I’ve been following (read following, not actually sewing, lol) the BOM and wanting to get going on it. Seeing your blocks is exactly the inspiration I needed. Your colors and techniques are really creative. Love the rick-rack! Thanks so much for sharing with us.

  44. The fabulous maggie allegedly said:

    Wow! I love you color choices in your baskets.

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
