蜂蜜壶蜜蜂 - #seadoyblock
一如既往，我需要用一点故事前言。尽管我倾向于在真空中设计，但我的草图书是锁定和钥匙，有时辉煌的人同时拥有相同的神话想法。当发生这种情况时，它真的应该庆祝。越来越多的人，我们都可以接受它了！（剽窃，当然是一个整体的故事）。这个街区发生了确切的事情。我于2016年3月底设计了缝制皇家街区，因为我从旧金山的假期回来。在我的素描书中坐在那里，如此许多其他设计，等待正确的时刻让自己有用。当我终于脱离地面的蜂蜜壶蜜蜂时，我知道我希望这是一个野卡块，因为主题是如此装配。在1月初，我开始做实践块。 I finally shared one of these test blocks with a few members of my online quilt tribe, explaining that I was nearly ready to get it out there. Seriously, not a day later a similar crown block showed up on Cat’s (@hellofromcat.）Instagram饲料作为她设计的东西，其中在A处使用了Makers Escape workshop later this year。消息从几个朋友开始滚动，询问发生了什么。虽然街区略有不同，但在突然有两个皇冠块时突然出现在似乎几乎没有任何一周。
I reached out to Cat directly, with a stiletto raised, ready to splash martini in her face. Ha! As if I would waste a perfectly good martini!? Ladies, gentlemen, no. We both just chatted about the situation, had a good laugh, went “SNAP!” and then congratulated each other on being creative geniuses! There are plenty of queens in the world–trust me, I know a good handful myself!–to inherit the crowns from both of our block designs. I don’t believe her block design has been released yet, but when it does, know that we were both creating thoughts independent of each other, and I have the utmost respect for her.
Now about my version! My #SewRoyalBlock is so super easy, you’re gonna think, “Why did no one come up with this before?” I know! K.I.S.S. I always say! There are five steps, but it really amounts to cutting the fabric, making some HSTs, making split QSTs, and then sewing it all together. However, this block has a twist!
No two crowns are ever the same right? Well, this tutorial allows for the ultimate flexibility in “making it your own.” This basic version shows how to make a crown with a solid band that runs around it, as shown in the first image. But what if you want to add diamonds? Or silver? Maybe some swirls? A mosaic of tiny shells. Fur linings would be good, too. Big giant rubies, or your own birthstone! There are so many possibilities, and I want you to use your own imagination and skills (I know you’ve got them) to create something truly unique. You have a 3″ x 8.5″ space to decorate however you see fit. (This is the size of the unfinished stripe section that is included in the tutorial below). You could even make the crown taller, or shorter, wider, or bigger if you needed to add some more flair! Don’t let my tutorial get in the way of your imagination: use it to spark it instead!
