Block #4 – Craftsy Block-of-the-month

After two weeks of doing other things, I was back in the quilt studio today and made Block #4 of the Craftsy block-of-the-month.  This was a lesson in curved piecing.  The block is huge so the curves are gentle.  I only had one pucker to undo.  The rest went together easily although it involved making templates (ugh).

Block #3 Craftsy 002The teacher suggested doing the blanket stitch by hand around the circle.  I took her suggestion and hated it, so I undid it and re-did it on the machine.  Much better.

Block #3 Craftsy 001The week before last I went to visit my sister-in-law in California.  I rested well in this cozy bed.

We went on a whale watching boat trip out of San Diego and then enjoyed a good lunch at The Fish Market.
