Soy Amado No. 55

All the blocks in this quilt came from one person, including an instructional two page step-by-step of how I was to assemble the blocks to make the quilt the way the maker envisaged.

I was tempted to ignore the letter and do it the way I wanted to.
Just because I rather like assembling these quilts in a random way.

But I reminded myself someone had taken the time to make all these blocks, reined in my inner-truculence, behaved and did as I was told.

And I'm rather glad I did.

Beautiful quilt in a beautiful location.

I took these photos less than an hour ago and have not touched up the colours in any way.

It's not often, but just once in a while we get a gorgeous winter's day and suddenly it feel as if spring is lurking just around the corner.

Soy Amado No.54

Happy New year to you.

Still slowly chugging away at these.

Too windy and miserable to even attempt a location shoot for you for Soy Amado No. 54 so the back garden it is.

Not even going to pretend it's a nice winter's day because it's not.

Not unless horizontal rain and heavy winds are your thing.

(They're most definitely not mine)

Although I'm clinging to the thought that technically the evenings are getting lighter now.

It's just I haven't noticed it yet.
