My Bee Sewcial gals may disown me, as I just might have gone off the deep end when it comes to my inspiration for this month. But gee, we've had nature and design elements, minimal color and maximum, even music. But in 18 months of being together, there's been no mention of food. Well I'm changing that and calling all of my bee-mates to the table, where the central prompt this month is ..... drumroll ..... BACON.
Yup. You heard me. And if that's not enough, the palette will consist of colors such as Kona solids Brick, Brown, Mocha, Chestnut, Spice, Cinnamon, Cocoa, and Caramel, though all solid fabrics are welcome. If a 'background' or more neutral element is needed, I'm asking for off-white or natural, not white-white. Linen, shot-cotton, leather, or any other texturally-interesting substrates are most welcome.
I'm requesting any size square or rectangular blocks, as long as two opposite sides equal 12.5" unfinished, all adding up to the equivalent of 2 - 12" finished blocks. I'd prefer no applique of any kind. Ruler-free piecing is encouraged but not mandatory, except for the final squaring up.
For those of you who would like to join in via the #inspiredbybeesewcial hashtag, please do not feel the need to take this prompt literal to the extreme! Be inspired by bacon. If your creations do not specifically look like bacon, that is ok! And yes, I've created a whole bacon-inspired pin board, but have chosen not to make inspiration blocks this time. I'm just really curious to see where this prompt takes folks.
So have fun creating with this unconventional theme as we wake up and smell the bacon!
