BLOCKHEADS2 - Week 12

This must be the week for overachievers.  This week's block and what I'm going to show at the end of this post will confirm that.  This block is DARLING! It is also a bit fussy.  I loved how it looks, but I may have swore a couple of times making it.  Week 12 is from Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings and the directions are HERE.

 This is in Minick and Simpson scraps.  Don't look too close. And you know what? Perfection is over-rated.
This is in Bella Solids - I love this one -  It's a keeper

 Here they are all grouped.....

What else is going on this week..... I finished a long term project.  This was my hand work in the evening all this spring and summer.  I found myself sketching one day and the next thing you know I had this to show for it.
I am calling this The Good Boy Quilt.... because of this.....
It's hard to see, but it's Gibby sitting on his ottoman with the words "Good Boy" stitched beside it.  There are all sorts of little critters in this. 

As of right now - there are no plans to make this a pattern.  I have had lots of interest on Instagram for a pattern and I will try to seek out some options, but it's a real long shot.  The amount of time and money going into producing this pattern would make it too expensive for everyone involved, especially you the consumer, but...... you never know.  

Laters,

Laurie

O.M.G!!! Your Good Boy Quilt is SUPER awesome!!! Yes. I would love to stitch one...yes, I understand the time and money involved in creating a pattern...maybe, perhaps you could offer a sew along kind of thing? That way it's not such a "close to follow" pattern, and folks can adjust elements to fit their home decor? Maybe offer a "booklet" of applique shapes and "general" instructions (guidelines)? Just some thoughts... you really created a magnificent work of art! Absolutely LOVE it!!!
P.S. Your new M&S logo (in blog header) is super as well! :-)

I'm going to keep my fingers (toes too!) crossed hoping you will could possibly change your mind about a pattern for your beautiful quilt?!

I just love everything about this quilt - amazing! Maybe you could offer it as a block of the month? I've done that with other super-involved quilts, and breaking it down seems to make it more do-able for everyone. At any rate, I'd certainly jump on it :)

Is Gibby a Good Boy for not chasing the cat or the rabbit. A beautiful work of art.

You might be surprised by just what we would pay for such a pattern. I can think of some other designers who are managing to sell their patterns at quite the price. It is such a fabulous quilt. At the same time, it is nice to have something that is yours and yours alone. Love your stuff. Becky
