This is how the block started out. I have to confess to a couple of mis-cuts but I didn't do too badly with the instructions that we were given by Katherine Kerr.
The 'Doves in the Window' looked like this as the initial star was made.
And like this once the 8 setting triangles were inserted.
I suspect that next week we'll be making a flying geese surround for it.
No other sewing this week - but a little architecture admiration. This is the ceiling of the cloister at Lacock Abbey that was used in a Harry Potter film or two, I'm told. It is beautiful. Not only the lovely warm colour of the local stone, but crafted so carefully too. I have a feeling that I should have taken more photos. It would make a beautiful start point for a quilt design, wouldn't it?
