May Bee Block

Name: Cynthia H.
Block Design Name: Drunkards Path
I like how she registers the middle by folding the quarter circle and the background to make sure the fabrics are centered. Please check your email for a PDF of the pattern!
Color Selection
Pick a main color that you'll use for the (4) squares: Pink (up to Blush) or Red (up to Maroon) or Orange (up to Yellowish Gold). Within the color-way you chose... For each of the (4) squares , please use fabrics saturated with mostly shades of that color- High Chroma. (So no multi-color fabric nor fabric with white background) Choose a different fabric for each of the (4) quarter circles. Going for scrappy within the color-way. Please use Kona White for the background.
Please name some designers or line of fabrics you like that will help us pick the right fabric for your block
Get inspired from these: Allison Glass- sunprint, igsignia ; Anna Maria Horner- color on color plaids/homespuns, crosshatch , sealing wax, daiquiri solid pallet from Anna Maria's website is good for inspiration; cotton and steel- blenders such as: Dottie Tangerine ... Add It Up Lip Gloss... Poolside Shaken Pink ....Rifle Paper Co. Wonderland Metallic Follow ... Macrame Owl Bead There Tomato ... Kujira & Star Trajectory Star... ; Tula Pink- color on color blenders; Art Gallery Fabrics- Prisma Elements Rad Rhodonite , Pastel Thrift Bibliomania ; Cloud 9- Organic Brush Strokes Trellis Coral , Organic Gather Sunshower Orange ; Alexander Henry- Once Upon A Time Heath Yellow/Red, Hot Pink and Old Rose; Amy Butler- Splendor Mighty Corners Cherry
Please make (4) 7 inch-ish drunkard path squares -- but don't sew them together into a block or trim them down. I will trim them down to 6 1/2" and play with them to either do a sampler or some other trad-modern arrangement.
Links to example of the quilt block or fabric you would like us to use.
Please email me at if you have any questions. THANKS!!!!
