Lake Country

Another month, another creative Bee Sewcial promt. This month, Felicity/Felicity Quilts chose the theme "Lake Country" since that's exactly where she's moving to in a few weeks. So of course, she asked for blocks in lake country colours - greens and blues - with the intent to create an impressionistic-looking lake/tree/sky quilt featuring strips going in one direction.

With my first block, I was totally thinking of a dense stand of trees on the far side of a lake.

Block two, I'm sure you can tell, was more about the lake itself.

I was really happy with the difference in scale between my two blocks and am anxious to see Felicity's quilt come together. Can't go wrong with blues and greens!


  1. You really have a knack for improv blocks Debbie! I don't know where you get your inspiration but I'd love a dose of it! LOVE the green one for its richness and depth especially!

  2. What a great idea! I'd love to see that when she is done!
