We had beignets for breakfast this morning - it was a packet mix brought back from the States a wee while ago, so time they were made up and eaten - I think I may have had the oil a bit hot, but they were great with a cafe au lait
We each had to make 6 blocks measuring 10 inches. No theme, they could be the same or different, and they were to be quilted. Each member of the S.I.X. group was given a block and then it had to be made into a quilt measuring 20 inches square. So we could cut up the original block if we wanted or just add blocks to get the required measurement.
This is the block I received from Rhonda:
Here are my three blocks:
|colour wheel stitched with sunburst thread into a vortex|
|background - still needs to be embellished|
|picture printed on to fabric, hand and machine stitching|
I am going to stitch a casing on to join them altogether, then finish with the embellishments.
Watch this space! :-)
