I had started collecting some of the McKenzie line from Dena Designs months ago. I knew I wanted to use it for a quilt for my bed, but didn't know exactly what I wanted to do with it. Then I joined the bee, so I figured I would use it for that!
But as far as what I wanted, I still didn't know.
Then I was watching Monsters, Inc. with my oldest daughter, and there's a scene with a warehouse full of doors. So it hit me that it would be super cool to have everyone in the bee to a door! House blocks are pretty popular, but I had never seen door blocks! So I went on Flickr, and sure enough, door blocks had been done. But that didn't make me not want to do it - if anything, it pushed me more to do it, because the blocks I saw were super cool!
In this particular bee, it's pretty standard to do 2 blocks, so I still didn't know what I wanted to do for that second block. I was talking to Ramona about it, and she said, "What about a window block?"
I loved the idea!
So that's what I'm going with.
Here are my blocks, which I'm going to be honest, I'm not totally over the moon about. I like them, but I feel like they're pretty simple. So I may end up changing them later.
That being said, I can't WAIT to see what everyone makes! Here's all the fabric packaged up and ready to go...
