Here are the most recent of my Pointless Sister blocks. I was having a heck of a time coming up with a non-trite butterfly, then settled on this close-up of a butterfly wing. I love it, and want to explore this in a bigger format.
A hat, with the specified terra cotta and turquoise. This was a good exercise for me in using color to create light and shadow, and using stitching to blend. I'm happy with how this turned out, especially since it doesn't look like a "cute" straw hat.
An ellipse, in blue and burnt orange. (I didn't think I had any "burnt orange" fabric--this is as close as I could come in my stash. But here's that close-up view again, which I like. Another idea to explore. It'd be fun to do a close-up series.
