Cleaning Up . . .

Mum's been helping me have a clean up of all my (many) piles in my sewing room. She's been very encouraging, and I can hardly believe how good it looks. While going through said piles, I did come across all these wonderful bright scraps - far too good to put in the "round file". In order to de-stress from all the tidying, I quietly started making some blocks while mum was having her afternoon nap. Don't look too closely at the uneven bits, but I really like it. Much better than in a pile in a snap lock bag.
. . . and thanks for all the lovely comments about my blocks inside blocks. It wasn't 'till I looked closely that I realised that I was showing it to you upside down, so here it is again.
. . . time for bed

It is truly amazing what you can create with a few scraps. I would like to have your talent. I think you have made another wonderful quilt top.

Upside down? I can not believe you, the 'wrong' side was equally beautiful.

I was about to write "bloody genius" and I looked at the word verification... "ingenuc"... at first glance, I thought it was going to say "ingenious".

Anyway... you're a bloody genius, woman!!! My quilting hero, too.

I love it! It looks like colourful gardens glimpsed through a window and the colours are fabulous.

Your blocks quilt looks great either way up!

Your stripy blocks create such a fab optical illusion, -reminds me of M.C Escher. x

Just goes to show, the block pattern is stunning and intricate whichever way it is presented.
