I've been practising

with some fabric for another quilt - small lap quilt for the seaside house. I had already made two sections of a QAYG for it when Sheila (bluepatchquilter) posted the instructions for the Mariner's Compass block. By then I was here in Devon and the Mystery Quilt fabrics were 200 miles away !
That latest block was just too tempting!!!

Here are the pieces so far -

 I really like the 3D effect with this block - but I know
I do tend to go for the dramatic looking designs - I love quiet subtle colouring but find it impossible to produce in fabric or paintings ! Someday maybe -----
