I have been playing around trying to work out how to do this pattern.
"The Quilter's Album of Blocks & Borders" by Jinny Beyer.
There are no measurements or instructions, so
I have been practising with paper.
See anything wrong?
There are supposed to be 2 different blocks not 2 piles exactly the same!
I think I have worked it out.
Now tell me there is a pattern using the trapezium shape!
I think this is called the 'Y-version' of tumbling blocks.
Now for the fabric.

Here'a a little story a lovely lady told me the other day....
At the boarding school she went to there was a sign by the appleS:
TAKE ONLY ONE, JESUS IS WATCHING!
Further down the counter there was a plate of bisciuts
where some one had made a little sign:
TAKE ALL YOU WANT
JESUS IS WATCHING THE APPLES!

I feel like I am on a long boring terrible trip.
Like one of those long long flights
from here to Europe
but I am in the sauna!
I should count my blessings.
The power is still on.
We have plenty of water.
I have a bath of cold water (my idea of a pool)
so I can wade in it now and again.
We have airconditioning, in one room.
And I can sew!
I love making tea cosies out of these precious little pieces.
You can buy one here!
