Kathi came to town last weekend to sew with Linda and I. Kathi worked on two garments, Linda made a blouse and a Christmas gift and I pieced my "Circles of the East" appliqué blocks.
I've been appliquéing these "Circles of the East" blocks for the last 12 years. The background fabric is hand-dyed pima cotton. The block pieces are commercial and hand-dyed cotton.
Last summer I dyed the sateen sashing in lilac along with six yards of sateen for the borders. I intend to appliqué the borders but haven't designed them yet.
These pretty passion flower vines are outside Linda's front door.
