Mr. July for #NGAQB — Ryan (and a gander at Tula Pink’s Moonshine line)
And now for another installment of the No Girls Allowed Quilting Bee….July was Ryan Walsh‘s month. Now I know that Ryan is a total fan for all things Tula Pink. So I really wanted to use Moonshine the newest (well at the time it was the newest) line from Ms. Pink.
Here are the lighter prints…
And here are the darker prints:
And my favorite prints, the red and blue ones….
These two prints are my top two favorites in this line…especially the red camping print! There’s even a bottle of moonshine floating in the creek. Tula has an amazing eye for detail! I love that about her work.
And for blocks, Ryan wanted one big block — Knee Socks by Elizabeth Hartman — instead of two 12″ blocks.
So I made these “socks” up for him in only the Moonshine prints.
But he said that he wanted mostly brights. ……and I thought that some of these socks might be a little too dark for the look he was going for.
So I pulled these “sock” sections out of the overall block. But I sent them to Ryan anyway thinking that he could work them into the back if he wanted to or into another block on the front, whatever….
So I pulled from some of the other Moonshine prints that I didn’t use the first time and additional scraps from my stash to create this final block for Ryan. And yes, there are two solids in there a light, light grey solid and an off-white solid Here’s hoping he likes it!!
