design camp 2

its my month as queen bee at the design camp 2 flickr group so this weekend I made my sample block and cut and packaged fabric to send away.

I decided to go with the mod mosaic block by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Fransson that I've been wanting to do for a while.

as I had to send fabric to 11 people my main concern was having enough of the same fabric to send out so I searched my stash and discovered some yardage of hot pink and lime green Kona solids and I started from that - then I spotted the Patty Young Blossom which had orange centres and so I added some orange as well - luckily the last two FQS blogger's bundles I received had some great pink, lime, and orange fabrics from Patty Young as well so I managed to get enough fabric together to send out.

I've given my fellow campers a warning that they might need their sunglasses on while making the block!

I'm going to use hot pink as the background for the front and I hope to have some blocks to use on the back as well - with the lime green background.  I've also tracked down some more of the monaluna orange spot to use for the binding so it will be one pretty bright quilt !  Just the thing to snuggle under on cold winter nights :)

Also on the weekend I finished the May and June design camp 2 blocks so I could send those off with the packages !

Mims sent some fabulous orange fabrics and asked for an improv block for May

while Tiff's June block request was for an improv robot.

The robot took a while to put together but I'm pretty happy with the end result!

hope you had a great weekend :)


  1. Hot pink, lime green and orange - fab combo, and you are going to have an amazing quilt with that block!

  2. Wow, I love your robot!! I can't wait to see your 'hothouse' blocks - I'll get my sun glasses ready!

  3. We could all do with some of those colours to warm us up over here Leanne! Lush!

    The robot is a cute chap! Is this for a boy quilt?

  4. Love the hot colours and the block, it'll be great when it's done!

  5. These are both really great blocks! Love the bright colors and the robot is perfect!
