Same design, whole different picture.
Busy working again so a quick post tonight. Sharing a couple of orphans who are now high on the "find homes" list. Chris from quilters taught us paper piecing a while ago, the blue and white was my effort. I got it to this point and no further, it was even lost a while. Thinking I may spark it up a bit and make it bigger, more blue, less white perhaps.
The other is the same method (my only machine paper piecing ever!) Going for a vibrant sun design that will eventually fit into my farm/chook collection for a big folk arty quilt. Hard to believe they are the same block.
In answer to some queries....I have been mushrooming since I could walk, so I know exactly what ones to pick and how they should look, touch and smell. It is beautifully easy after 35 years experience but not a game for new (unsupervised) players. Had one roasted upside down about 10 minutes before the end of a rolled roast chicken last night...you know those nice cooking juices mixed in with the mushroom flavour........
