I’m just way too easily distracted. A friend posted an EQ drawing on my Facebook page the other day. Could I resist it? No, not a chance! I looked at it and looked at it and it dawned on me how to make …
… this block. I have no idea if it has a proper name, but for whatever reason I’m thinking of it as a poinsettia. Can’t you see this in reds and pinks? Irresistible! It’s made using quarter clamshell shapes and, of course, I used Inklingo to print the shapes on my fabrics. I can’t even begin to imagine making this block and getting the perfect curves on such tiny pieces any other way.
Each square measures 1.5″ and the little block finishes at 6″. It has me absolutely captivated. So another on the list of little quilts I want to make – maybe a bouquet of blocks of different colours. A block with scrappy blues, one with scrappy mauves/purples, another with more pinks of course, one with reds – and the list goes on and on.

A box arrived last week and we’ve been unable to throw it out. Because, of course, a box is an absolute cat magnet and this box is a perfect size for the boys. This time Jake had taken up residence in it while Baxter looked on. I’m waiting for the day they both try to get in it at the same time.
