I made the first block a couple weeks back and it looks like this..
Then last Saturday, I got carried away and made 2 more blocks in less than 2 hours! which look like this...
I've finished the book I told you about in my post on 5th Jan. I found 'Woman in Berlin' un-put-downable. Whoever this woman was, told her horrific story in a calm matter of fact way with out over-dramatizing her experiences. I for one was completely unaware of these events following WW2 although I knew things were bad for Germany at this time. I would highly recommend this book as a frank account of events which took place in Berlin.
Finally before I head off to the cutting board to cut more strips, when I had my 'tidy up' in the workroom the other day I came across a large carrier bag which I thought contained orphan blocks. The bag, which was passed to me when a previous member of SVQ moved away had fallen out of its place in the pile of 'stuff to be sorted' so I thought I would sort it out and came across this little quilt
Well off to the cutting/ironing board.
