Hourglass blocks for Trudi

This week I’m trying to catch up on bee blocks.  The first two are for Trudi of The Bee’s Knees VQB.  Trudi lives in England and it took about six weeks for her fabric to get to most of us.  Just when I was about to conclude it had been lost, it arrived!  Trudi’s fabric choices will make a nice, summery quilt.

We are nearing the end of this bee and I still haven’t quilted my Bee’s Knees quilt.  It is all pinned and ready to go.  (The picture was when it was still on the design wall.)  Part of the problem is I had a very elaborate quilting plan in mind that had paths connecting the houses.  I think I might revise the plan to something much simpler as I’m worried that the busyness of the fabric won’t support the complicated quilting very well, especially on the darker background parts.  What do you think?

    I love your houses, they look fabulous all together! Have you thought about a thread that will stand out to show the paths? Just a tought 🙂

    I love this neighborhood! I think you are right about an elaborate quilting design on your busy fabric. But anything you do will be a perfect choice so just start quilting and don't stop until your heart is filled!
