Next I made the cornerstones and laid them all out. I had to avoid placing the black cornerstone with a black frame as the four-patches were totally lost where that occurred.

I am hoping Mum has a quilting design that will look like coffee steam - sort of swirly with points in it as well - steam and flames behave a lot alike don't they?
These fabrics are really lively. I can't wait to see them quilted.Alright!! I'm on the way to another finish!!

I provided the background fabric (4 different colours), and requested no flowers, frills or pink - Feupie does NOT DO pink. At all.
Feupie is the special nickname I use for my sister.
As you can see, I stitched a Fish. Other blocks are: Fresh Fruit, Falling leaves, Feline Fleur de lys, out of the Frying pan into the Fire, Fabulous Funky Fungi, Fat Furry Feline, Feupie and Frainse, Fish, Frog, Fraise (French for strawberry), French Friends Farewelling a Friend on the sailboat "Free".
The blocks have been cut down, the sashings are chosen, and the binding is already put away. I started with a reddish colour for the cornerstones, but had to change to green. There wasn't enough contrast.
I was too tired to finish adding the last couple of rows. I hope I don't put this down for too long!!
