Creativity

Creativity never ceases to amaze me. It’s what makes the world so much fun! If you haven’t been over to my Flickr group lately, stop by! You will not believe your eyes! These quilters are so CREATIVE! I’ve linked a few photos from the group. There are pages and pages of amazing blocks! Just click on the photos below, or the Flickr link above and you’re in for a treat!

From France

Bienvenue

The French have such a creative style…and their language is naturally so romantic. A welcome sign for guests and friends from Lhise!

…and just look at the detail put into these blocks below from Cat-530…each and every one so special! You can see how “international” this group is!

And now we begin the countdown to July 5th! Hummm wonder what the July block looks like? Here’s a few hints:

  1. I used a piece of cream wool in the appliqué version.
  2. The wool is outside of the basket.

Leave a comment, guess correctly what I’ve used the snow wool for, and you’ll be automatically entered into a drawing to win a Bunny Hill pattern of your choice!

Have a great 4th! I’ll see you all on the 5th!

Hugs,

 

Anne

    Sharon LFReplyCancel

  • Miss Jean - Oh, boy, people have already guessed what I would have, either a lamb or Uncle Sam's beard. How about Washington's wig? Firecrackers? A white chicken or rooster? A poodle? Somebody help me out here!ReplyCancel

  • mahladybug - Hi Anne, First I thought of a flag coming out of the basket on a flag pole. Perhaps it is a liberty bell. But then I thought it could be a wool banner with let freedom ring sewn on it. One thing for sure is that we are all going to love whatever you are going to surprise us with. Thanking you in advance from all of us.ReplyCancel

  • luvtoquilt - I am enjoying this project so much — I just can't wait for the fifth of each month to arrive — you are so creative! Given your love of animals, my guess is that this month we will have a woolly lamb or sheep.ReplyCancel

  • Barb - Oh wow, those are wonderful…mine are not that good….ReplyCancel

  • Anne - You're right Brigette, but hey, you and I could stage a coup and reveal ALL! Think about that one, Anne! OMGosh, I'm cracking myself up right now. It's late, I know.ReplyCancel

  • Janelle - Hi Anne,
    My guess would have to be a lamb also… not original but I think it would have be something from nature and a lamb or sheep is the only thing cream and fluffy I can think of that's not a rabbit (which you've already used twice!).ReplyCancel

  • CJ - I think a flag.ReplyCancel

  • LauraT - How about a little baby chick? I would love to win one of your patterns! Happy 4th of July:)
    Laura TReplyCancel

    4th of July. Love all your designs
    so it's hard to guess. Thanks for a chance to win a pattern.ReplyCancel

  • Amanda - I suspect it will be something more international than a flag, and I'm guessing at your 'signature' bunny rabbit tail.ReplyCancel

  • Kim - I think it's probably about time for a bunny to show up in the next block–a soft and furry cream wool bunny!ReplyCancel

  • Mountain Gate - Going outside of the box…how about a snowman (errr, snowperson), announcing Christmas in July?ReplyCancel

  • xstpenguin - Hi Anne, love your blog, I'll delurk for a guess here.

    None of the previous blocks have had a sky, but I guess a cloud. That is what I thought before I read everyone else's comments. But I reckon the ice cream is closer to the summer mark!

    Cheers,
    AJReplyCancel

  • Scottish Nanna - My guess is little bunny tails.
    Hugs Mary.ReplyCancel

  • Karen - My guess is a flower of some kind…maybe a Shasta Dasiy…they're in bloom in the summer time;)ReplyCancel

  • Vickie E - My guess is a Firecracker for the fourth of july.ReplyCancel

  • pdudgeon - ok, i'll be different—i"m guessing that it's a white wool star!ReplyCancel

  • Lynn S - When I think of July–I think of the 4th–wonderful wool stars! Perhaps stars shooting out of a sparkler or to represent our union of states.ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - I bet it is a bunny, chick, and a lamb all having a 4th of July parade with a flag in their hands. Maybe they are saluting which would be very patriotic but I have hear that bunnies especially are very proud of their country. Lambs and sheep in general are stubborn but patriotic also, they just take longer to salute as it is hard to stand on 3 legs. Chicks are generally wiggly and have a hard time standing still for the entire national anthem but they do with their wing over their heart. I hope I win and I hope that everyone has a wonderful and safe Independence Day. Kim Fayetteville NCReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - Yes my guess is a lamb also. You had
    mentioned a lamb awhile ago….

  • di - I think a bunny or bunny tail would be too cute! Looking forward to the reveal! Happy 4th!ReplyCancel

  • Cathy - I guess the cream wool is a bunny or at least a bunny's tail. I really like the kitchen towel you showed – good example of an alternative use for the designs.

  • Mary - I can only guess that it's part of some patriotic bunny.ReplyCancel

  • Cindi D - The are beautiful blocks! Now for my guess — hmm, could it be a star?ReplyCancel

  • Charity - This is the first that I have commented. But I have been following along on the blog and with the block of the month. I am trying the redwork version. They all have turned out wonderful so far. I'll have to send a picture at some point.
    I think in July you will have a waskly wabbit(rabbit)coming to visit. After all these designs are coming from the head bunny herself. Have a great day!ReplyCancel

  • Kathryn - I'm guessing that the wool represents an ice cream cone. What could be better on a warm July day.ReplyCancel

  • Barb - Well, if it is outside the basket and it is the 4th of July, then I am ging to guess it has something to do with fireworks–so the white is used in fireworks.ReplyCancel

  • Quilt Hollow - I have to guess flag but then my first thought was lamb.ReplyCancel

    lorene hReplyCancel

  • Thimbleanna - Well Duh. It never occured to me to use your adorable basket patterns for something other than quilt blocks. I love the towels! I'm guessing the wool will be the white stripes on the US flag for the 4th of July. (But really, I like the guess someone else made of Uncle Sam's beard — that makes more sense!)ReplyCancel
