This block was part of a cute little quilt I saw 5 years ago in a French quilt magazine publicity. Unfortunately, I couldn't order it (no information at all).
It haunted my mind and I decided to draw it on a paper pattern sheet, changing some details in respect of the (unknown) author.
My impulse was stopped when I realized that it had to be paper-pieced, for an optimal result!
I really am VERY bad at paper-piecing.... A good quilting friend of mine did it for me, as a Christmas present, and I really LOVE it ! It hangs on our chimney wall... (Thanks, Simone !)
It's evening now : I'd better go back quilting !
