Me Bee-ing Sewcial

I am Miss April and have been thinking long and hard of how to challenge my bee mates in Bee Sewcial. I am the first to admit that I don't think out of the box very well, so my ideas are pretty literal and basic. I found this painting on Pinterest that I like and have chosen it for my inspiration colors. I have also chosen some artwork as inspiration for the quilt blocks.

I would like circles, ovals, curves. Not just a curved seam, but a curved shape.
These are the challenges I have set up for my group. Now, I look forward to reaping the benefits of this talented group of sewists.







My first two blocks that I made are simple. I'm going to try some inset circles and other forms of curved shapes to add to my quilt. 
This is an all solids bee, so I might need to increase my stash.
