Yesterday it was time for the second SBS block. After washing and cutting the fabric I could begin.
"That looks like a beautiful flower", Brumelda said after seeing all the little pieces.
"Thats correct Brumelda because this is block G-9 and its called Modern Tulip".
Today I could begin with sewing the pieces together. Brumelda handed me the little pieces and I did hear how she was singing a Dutch song, called Tulips from Amsterdam. So she did remember the name of the block.
I was so busy with piecing the blocks that I didn't notice that she was gone.
"Brumelda where are you?"
"I'm here, just wait a second", sounded it from the garden, so I waited. After awhile she came in and sat on my cuttingmat with a blue hydrangea in her arms.
"I couldn't find a blue tulip, but I did find this beautiful blue flower. Its a special gift for you Carin", she said.
"Well thank you Brumelda for that lovely flower and I have finished my block, so come on and sit beside it with the beautiful flower".
