Isn't it stunning?

Returning home, I also found another package from my good friend V. at The "Bearister" Bookcase.
And here's what I just finished.
No, no, not the whole thing - I just added one block to this. It was quick. Just cut two 5 inch squares of one colour and sub-cut into 2.5 inch squares. Then cut two more 5 inch squares in a lighter or darker colour and sub-cut those into 2.5 inch squares. Sew them together alternating light and dark. Voila, you have an 8.5 inch 16-patch block. This will be for a single bed so I still have lots of blocks to cut and sew. It's a slow process.
I have other things that I am working on but since I can't show them yet, this addition to my 16-patch will have to do.
