Working on a Bon Bon

This will be Bon Bon #4, and it is sunglasses bright, but it was O-Dark-Thirty when I shot this picture. It's almost a square yard (36"x35.5") before quilting, so it is slightly smaller that the first three Bon Bons. This is the way I built it, but I am considering turning it 90 degrees.
Like this. In the previous 'blue' Bon Bon #3, I used much darker blues and greens, and left them out of this one. Less pink too (compared to the 1st and 2nd), and more orange. This results in a slightly different character, more sunny and juicy, rather than sweet.

The commercial stripes and dots are featured more in this concentrated stipey area.
I thought I would reuse the diagonal that was eliminated from the BB3 and spent all day Sunday adding to that, but really it is a disaster. Instead of stomping out of the studio and pouting, I started this new piece late in the afternoon. I was hoping I would find a way to use up the scraps that remained in a huge pile on the table...but new fabrics were fused and added to the mix, so there you go.
When I was still working as a teacher, I would be thinking that there is a workshop in all these quilts...which would have been my motivation to make them. These designs are really fun to construct, easy to quilt (in the ditch) and having them hanging here in the house has made me smile when I enter the rooms they are in. Can you beat that for a reason to make them?

  1. I LOVE this one! The blues and the oranges! I swear, if I keep reading your blog I'm going to have to go buy some fusible web! That would be quite a feat for me...as I tend to like traditional piecing and applique...but have always aspired to be an art quilter! Keep inspiring!!! :o)

  3. Yes Liz, all the wall quilts I make are fused, always fused.
    But any of these Bon Bons could easily be pieced. Not as quickly, of course. I still prefer fusing, not just because of instant gratification, but because everything lies flat, no lumps from seams. They are like fabric paintings.

  4. The first photo makes me think of a flag. I would hang that flag up in my house and salute it every day and sing Good Morning Sunshine!

  5. Girl,

    I swear - do you ever sleep? I never thought I'd be addicted to a "Melody" but I am. Each day I check your blogspot almost without fail. Of course being snowbound and without power made that task more difficult!!

    Truly, truly an inspiration!! Keep up the fantastic work - I'm so inspired!!

  8. How wonderful! Love the bright colours and the design! Wish I had the nerve to use these kind of colours. I think I just have to try some day.

    I think this would be more spectacular if you were to incorporate some black batik between the rows of color.......it would make the colors pop!
