This block took a little longer to make as it has more complicated pieces, but I'm happy with it. Had to piece the background, but I don't think its too noticeable. Love the pieced fabrics that are used to make pieces in blocks in the old quilts - I think they add so much character. Finishing this block means the Spencer quilt is 1/3 done! Going to head in a different fabric choice direction with the next set of blocks. Hope it works out!
Planted five different heirloom tomato plants, some basil, and a Japanese maple tree last weekend. Also need to plant a bay laurel tree, but not sure where it will go. Very excited about this as we use a lot of bay leaves in our cooking. Reading Frida, a novel about Frida Kahlo written by Barbara Mujica, which is told in the voice of her sister, Cristina. So far, its very good!
