The image above has been available as a jigsaw puzzle for many years.
Recently, I came across a post at Victoriana Quilting Designs featuring this quilt.
It appears there was Facebook interest in the block and Benita at VQD
did some investigating and found that it was similar to a rising sun block.
Benita has drafted a pattern and written a lovely tutorial so we
can all make "Santa's Rising Sun" quilt. Please pop over and
take a look, and also enjoy all the other lovely things at this site.
This quilt is being added to my already too-long bucket list.
No sewing going on... lots of the day job...
Hopefully needle in hand over the Easter break.

This beauty was made by Edith Morrow Matthews for the
1933 World's Fair - Sears competition.
I found it on The Quilt Index here,
but you will also find it here.
I think it's totally awesome and very in the
spirit of the modern quilts we are seeing today.
You've all probably seen it already,
but it's new to me.
(I'll show you my sewing soon.)

This is what I sent to Melinda.
The leafy sea dragon is native to the waters of the
south west of Western Australia.
For some of the quilting I repeated shapes of the
elements of the pattern. I used freezer paper templates.
I enjoyed making this art quilt for Melinda.
I also made this little owl ornament for her.

The Missouri Star Quilt Company has this great tutorial for this block.
It starts with a giant pinwheel.
Go have a look.
(I found this image on the web.)
Two of my favourite blocks combined.
I think I'll grab the remnants of a layer cake
and try a few blocks. I love these Missouri Star tutorials.
