    Since I've been in India for the last week, I've had some time to work on some more of the William Morris blocks that I'll eventually work into a quilt. Here's six more that I've done while here. These are all just fused in place, I'll blanket stitch them down when I get back home.

    They're from a book called "William Morris in Applique" by Michele Hill. The pattern is called "Friends".

    I'm here on business for 2 weeks, teaching some of our Indian counterparts for the company that I work for. We're in Bangalore, which is in the southern part of India.
