|Once again, the photo is 'borrowed' from the magazine.|
This pattern was a result of me wanting to inject a little of an ombre effect into the traditional 'x'&'+' block. I had been mulling it over for a while and I requested it as my bee blocks for February which was my month in Stitch Tease. Having the blocks used as a cushion for the magazine was a major bonus.
My bee mates have been so wonderful as they have all made their blocks but they kept quiet about it, fully understanding that I couldn't go public about the block until the magazine had been published. Meanwhile, blocks have been arriving and I have a nice stack built up.
All the blocks are here except Annabella's, and hers are made. She is using the courier skills of her mother to take them from Marrakech back here to the UK, and I will receive them soon. I've had absolutely no time to work on this project so there was definitely no need for them to get here any sooner.
I made some extra blocks, and have one more to go. With Annabella's and this last block from me the quilt will measure 5 blocks by 6 blocks and measure up at 50" x 60". I am trying to decide whether I will add a border or not. This is what the blocks look like all together right now.
A big thank you to all my Stitch Tease friends for keeping quiet all this time and for making such beautiful blocks.
