I started stitching on this block for my "Contentment" anniversary quilt project while watching the opening ceremony for the Rio Olympics. It seemed appropriate...I love all the International cooperation and participation. I wish the only battles in the world were the ones between athletic teams with no violence.
The block measures 10-inches finished. Steve and I are pretty peaceful and wish there was less violence in the world. I have two more 10-inch blocks to do, then I have to start putting it together.
This makes me panic because I have not figured out what to put around the center block. I need to have a 2-inch border of some kind. I cannot decide...pieced, appliqued...ugh! I will draw out some possibilities and try and nail down a decision.
Are you watching the Olympics? I am enjoying all of it. The most surprising event for me has been the women's rugby...that is such a strange sport with the big ball! Weird!
I was so moved by the opening ceremonies...it is always so interesting to see what the host nation puts together. That projection system was amazing! And I loved the moving sculpture behind the lighted cauldron.
I wish all nations would act as if the rest of the world was really watching all the time...including us!
