It's true, but it also happens to be the name of a course I attended in October 2009 at my LQs, this time with Margaret Hughes.
This is a handsewn block worked in two colours. I have kept to blue and white for my blocks although I think Margaret's blocks were different pastel colours.
I have only completed three blocks but have enjoyed learning the technique of sewing curves. I started making these blocks while waiting for the children to do a swimming class or some such thing. They do less classes now so I don't take this with me enough, obviously - probably distracted by the two other hand pieced quilts I have now got to the quilting stage.
I have cut out lots of blocks which I haven't succeeded in sewing yet. It might be quicker if I changed to sewing on the machine but I'm not sure about those curves???
Imagine my surprise when leafing through the Jan Halgrimson book I posted about recently and I saw this:
So now I know the name of the block - Rose Dream - or at least one name...!
As this is my last hand stitching quilt in progress I should really push on with it and get all those pieces I carefully cut out stitched together.
