Secret Garden Sewing...

I bravely cut into my Sandi Henderson fabric. The feel of this fabric is amazing. It's soft and silky. I may have to even splurge on a silk or bamboo batting for this one!

My original plan was to use 4 quarter-square triangles in the center, but I tried that and it looked like a jumbled mess. So I ended up cutting it as one square and, wow, it looks much better (Nicky, I think you suggested that!). The block is simple, but will truly show off the beautiful, big prints.
Four done...



Here they are on the design wall (with a little sneak peek at my circling geese). Now I'm ready to order the hyacinth blue for the sashing. To be continued...

  10. Pretty! Very oriental looking. Those center squares are perfect looking. I think they would only look good pieced if they were solids. N
