Rex Ray inspired. Pastiche bee ~ block for July

As for most od the July I will be away from sewing machine and visiting my family I decied to already sew the next Pastiche bee block. July is Krista's month and she chose Rex Ray art as inspiration for the blocks. I didn't know this artist before and was amazed by his graphic designs. Great colour combinations, lots of curves and various shapes. Wonderful topic for a bee. You can see all his art pieces HERE

Jako ze przez wieksza czesc lipca bede w-odwiedzinach-u-rodziny-bez-maszyny, postanowilam juz teraz uszyc lipcowy Pastiche bee blok. W lipcu, Krista wybrala grafiki Rex'a Ray'a jako inspiracje dla naszych blokow. Nie znalam tego artysty wczesniej, a szkoda, bo tworzy genialnie. Jego sztuka to zabawa ksztaltami i kolorami - swietny temat na quilting bee. Galerie jego prac mozecie znalezc TUTAJ.
Szczegolnie spodobala mi sie ta praca:

This one became one of my favourites from the first moment I saw it:


And I decided to sew a block based on that graphic. Krista asked for black fabric as a part of a block as  something which would connect all bee blocks which she will get, so I made a black background. Pity that I don't have any shot cottons. They would be great for sewing this block (I know that there are still some blue marks from washable marker, which obviously I have to wash away before sending the block).
Piecing curves was tricky. It took me ages to prepare tempates (EQ7 somehow didn't want to cooperate with me this time) and cut all the fabrics, but sewing was a challenge. And I like challenges! I really, really like this block. It looks super cool for me and I hope Krista will be happy :) 

No i postanowilam uszyc moj blok wlasnie na podstawie tej pracy. Krista prosila o uzycie koloru czarnego w pracach, jako elementu laczacego bloki, ktore od nas dostanie, wiec wybralam czarny material na tlo. Szycie po lukach bylo wyzwaniem, ale takie wyzwania bardzo lubie! Szylo sie dluuugo (to musze przyznac) i nie bylo latwo ale blok bardzo mi sie podoba. Mam nadzieje, ze Krista bedzie zadowolona :)
