One of Mum's cacti has this incredible huge red flower, and there are about 5 more on the same plant. Very spectacular, but I've got no idea what it's called. Pudgy hand included for scale....My trip to the quilt shop yielded some fat quarters and 2 metres of a likely material for the setting squares. I shan't show it here until I've decided whether it's the One.

Don't know what this haul will be used for, none of them are really exciting but they go with collections that I'm amassing for certain projects. I'm in a constant state of being 'With Project', so I'm always on the lookout.
Let's just say I think I'm a bit out of control with the square in square units. I've done 27 blocks and yet I've got more of the little units than when I started. And I can't stop cutting more out!! You can partly see a red and cream block that I got side-tracked with, ahem, I might be making a set of them too.....As well as two other ideas I had, but I'm not saying nuthin about them....

I love these blocks you are making and I am curios to see how the top will be finished.

Mereth, Your quilt from your last post captured my eye and I had to try making the block. I love it! I just posted a picture of my beginnings. I hope you like it, and I hope you don't mind my borrowing inspiration from you. Thanks!

that cactus is some sort of epiphyllium (i think!)

Just a note to let you know I dropped by and enjoyed reading your blog. Your fabric would look super in my Dear Jane. All of your blocks are really pretty.
