Caswell Block C4

Here is my latest C4 block - further evidence of my addiction:

Caswell Quilt - Block C4

I finished the last stitches in this block yesterday afternoon while I was cooking for the hubster's 'significant' birthday party dinner we had last night. It was a really fun time, but I'm feeling mighty tired today. Because it was such a late night, we left most of the aftermath to deal with for today, and the sweet guy has already tackled most of the dishes before I even climbed out of bed this morning. He's a keeper!

But back to the block - I didn't necessarily use the same colours as the original block - that purple flower definitely wasn't in the plan. Also, on the blue and yellow flower at right, the two outermost petals I had originally stitched a yellow batik fabric down - when the block was finished I just didn't like them, so I swapped them out for the petals you see now. The yellow ones were just the only thing my eye rested on, so out they went.

Not sure if I'll get another block started today - I still have chores to get through, and some guild work to tackle ... here's betting I'll find a few minutes for my stitching though ... :-)

Another magnificent block!

It does sound like your husband is a keeper - tell him Happy Belated Birthday from Wyoming, USA.

Sensational! How is that each new one is my current favorite? Get some sleep and then keep stitching!

Who are you kidding, there is tennis on the tv. We both know how much you love watching that. I predict a few more finishes this week. It is looking beautiful though ������

I just got caught up on all your yummy Caswell blocks...dang girl, they are simply beautiful! I bought that pattern right before moving and can't find it yet, so I will just have to drool over yours until I do!
