Marilyn's theme for January was An Ode to John Keats. We chose quotes from separate poems and designed blocks using the poem's imagery. Marilyn plans to stitch lines of the poem directly into the quilt.
This is my portion of "Fancy" by John Keats
Freckled nest-eggs thou shalt see
Hatching in the hawthorn-tree,
When the hen-bird's wing doth rest
Quiet on her mossy nest;
I did a little thread sketching on this one. It took a long time to find the motivation to make it, but I did savor daydreaming about this block. I'm excited to see what Marilyn does with these blocks. You can see some of the other Pastiche Bee creations here.
