Monday and today I spent several hours at the hospital sitting with a family member and took some handwork. I just have to embroider some details onto these animals and I will have 4 more blocks done. I’m glad I had them prepared to take. It sure helped to pass the time.
After watching the rebroadcast of a 10 year old show by Georgia Bonesteel this morning, I was inspired to work in EQ. I started with the carpenter’s square block
and next decided to take off the last round of strips. I liked the new block better.
Then I discovered that the center portion was very much like the chain block which is simple but interesting.
It can also be used to create a pattern similar to one by Georgia Bonesteel called “Calico Crossover”. I wonder if that is how she got her design idea. The design will go on my list of quilts I will make one day. I enjoy the Celtic feel.
