WIP Wednesday [Patchwork City - curry]

We went away last weekend to celebrate my mother-in-law's 60th Birthday. Fourteen of us descended on an unsuspecting country house hotel near the Scottish border and had a great weekend. We ate well, some of us drank well (there was no WKD Blue left after my sister-in-law had finished drinking cheeky Vimtos...). We spent Saturday at Bamburgh Castle and were so lucky with the weather - I could cope with this view from my living room! Who said the North Sea is grey?



Mia seemed to enjoy herself too - look at that grin!

And we topped off the weekend with Cards Against Humanity - not an appropriate game for Aunty Barbara, but a big hit with Uncle Gordon!

Two days away from my sewing machine, and I was getting severe withdrawal, so Sunday afternoon when we got back home, Michael and Mia napped together on the sofa, I sewed up her new bibs, and then I cut the fabrics for the next set of Patchwork City blocks: curry.

But it was only tonight that I got to put them together.

I now have nine blocks, making up three of the larger block sets, and 22 sets still to go, but I'm falling more and more in love with these blocks.

The curry fabrics are Kona curry (!), Comma by Zen Chic by Moda, 2 prints from Botanics (love), and XOXO from Cotton + Steel. The neutrals are not very different from my teal blocks, but I have added in the butterfly print which is from Biology by Sarah Watson (Cloud 9) and the black and white Oval Elements from Art Gallery.

Love the "consider the lilies" fussy cut, but don't understand
why it was on the fabric or what it means really
Linking up with WIP Wednesday!

Those blocks are so fun in the this color palette!
