The Kansas City Star reminds the reader that "it is rather an intricate pattern, but will not daunt the quilter who aspires to a design that is both lovely and unusual." It certainly was a challenge. This block is pieced by hand using the English Paper Piecing method (over cut out papers).
I have made it before as an applique block. Also a challenge, I'm not sure which method was easier.
That is all the quilty bits for this post. You don't have to read any more but if you are one of my invisible friends you may want to continue.
I prepped the Rising Sun block so I could take it with me on holidays. Our favourite holidays always involve beaches.

This was a special holiday because it celebrated the sale of our family business. I am now retired - more or less. I will still be looking for part time or casual work but I will no longer be in a shop six days a week - what a relief!
It also means more time for quilts, both sewing and researching. I have quite a few projects planned. The only question now is - what do I do first?!
