Eat me, Drink me Block

eat me, drink me This is my second block for the Pastiche bee, and I hate to say it, but it looks an awful lot like my first block. Obviously, the shapes I chose are similar (little cake and bottle vs. teacup and bottle), but I also think I am not so fantastic at choosing fabric. The other women in this bee are so amazing at painting with fabric (for example) which is something I’ve not worked up the nerve to try yet. As a result, I worry that my blocks look too simple. Aieee.

I do like the hand stitching details–the little “drink me” note that is tied to the bottle and the “eat me” frosting on the cake. Smoochee asked for Alice in Wonderland inspired blocks and I chose “eat me, drink me” because I knew I could manage it. Next month is my month and my theme is vintage school/office and I’m super excited to see what people make. Here is my pinterest board for the bee. Maybe while everyone else is working on blocks for my month, I should try making a more sophisticated block.

  1. I’m fairly new to sewing so fabric choice is something I’ve definitely been wrestling with. I hope in my case practice will eventually make perfect!
    I love your eat me, drink me block though – so cute!

    Are you jokin?! It’s fantastic! I LOVE your color /fabric combos and also the simplicity of the design. Beautiful!

    I don’t think paper piecing has to be painterly and simplicity is a positive feature, it really focuses on a theme and your block screams Alice in Wonderland! Interested to see what the bee members come up with for you, interesting theme and pins
