This month's Bee Sewcial prompt is "Ice," and thankfully, Leanne/@shecanquilt asked us to create INSPIRED by ice, rather than a literal representation. My first thought was a hole in the ice on a lake (probably because it's a huge fear-inducer), so I began with the "circular" bit. 

But from there it was all spikey icicles and frosty shards.

Absolutely loved Leanne's chosen palette - all the blues, grays/silvers, and white. Obviously I stuck mostly with the blues, and at Leanne's suggestion, even added in a bit of metallic, specifically some Essex Yarn Dyed Metallic in Water. The finished block measured 16.5" x 18.75" and boy, it felt good to do some real improv.
