|A lovely shot with our water tanks in the background :0) but you can see the hint of red I added to the outer sashing, just to tie into the red accents in two of the blocks.|
|And a bit closer up - but without the bottom bit - as always the wind picked up just as I stood to click the camera.|
And the view from the other way - an absolutely stunning winters day...
I've also been enjoying the remaining blocks from the Cross section of Tula's modern block sew along. Look - photos taken in actual sunlight!
Block 13 - this was a fun block that I could imagine doing as a scrappy quilt:
I've also finished the last little bit of my Sewing Circle tote. A bit rough around the edges in places - but done, and done is good. I chose not to add the short handles per the pattern - as I already have so much weight around the sides that there is still a tendency to sag (never a good thing) and I think just one set of handles will be perfectly adequate. Although I might just add a second row of stitching just under the top row - so that it matches the stitching on the pockets.
