Verité #2

And here’s the next one.

This is the Arkansas Traveller block. I made the diamond centres first, and then used them as a single piece when I paper pieced the rest. I love how it turned out 🙂

Don’t you love how it looks like juicy orange segments? I think there may be one more, and then I’ll stop till it’s finally time for the whole F2F group to send out their blocks. Verité will sleep peacefully till then…

Meanwhile, I have other things on my mind. And chocolate to eat.

Wish me luck for tomorrow’s gadolinium injection and MRI 😦

      I really, really love this one! It also makes a great foil for yesterday’s lilac and teal version. I just adore that lush, juicy brightness agains the plain coolness of the grey.

    Beautiful and, yes, juicy orange segments come to mind.
    I was just working out the time zone difference and thinking about sending you an email to wish you luck for tomorrow but I’ll do it here now. I’m thinking of you all the time now and will continue to do so until the results come in. Lots of hugs and positivity coming your way xxxx

  3. I’m thinking of you, sending positive vibes, and hoping that my immediate thought (due to misreading whilst still abed) was which conveniently actually coordinates with that gorgeous block. Not that i knew that before having only ever seen it i black and white 🙂
    Hope that brings you a smile. Sending you hugs and strength (don’t feel you need to reply, focus on your relaxation) x

    Good luck tomorrow! I’ll be thinking of you.
    And that’s another wonderful block. 🙂

    Hugs and prayers for you tomorrow and the days that follow. Those colours are so positive- love them.

  6. This is just utterly gorgeous and as you know my favouritest colours as you well know. A perfect colour when you are not feeling your usual bright self.
    Love and hugs to you always and you know I’m praying 🙏♥️

  7. Love the colours esp the paisley sections. Had to Google gadolinium injection… ooh. All will be well, and then all will be well ♡

    Will indeed be thinking of you. Just dream about quilt blocks while they are messing about with you! And let us know the results (tests and quilt blocks) please

  9. Love it! Good luck we are all rooting for you! ❤

  10. Savor your chocolate restorative and I wish you peace during tomorrow’s tests.
    And yes, that block evokes images of juicy orange segments!

    • katechiconi says:

      I have managed to achieve chocolate overload without finishing the block 🙂 Tomorrow will bring whatever tomorrow brings, and I will deal with it. So long as I can still make pretty things, I’ll be happy!

    Prayers for you, today and tomorrow and forever. I LOVE THE BLOCK!

  12. It’s just stunning! I love the combination of colors.

  13. magpiesue says:

    Oh yes, totally gorgeous block! Praying for you and for a happy outcome.

  14. kathyreeves says:

    Kate, praying and wishing you the very best tomorrow, that the gadolinium does its job to help the docs see very clearly and that the outcome is positive. I am off all this week, so if you want/need a distraction of the FaceTime variety, I can manage the time change. If you don’t want to, not a problem, just wanted to put the offer on the table.

    All the really good words have been used to describe that block. I guess I could say “ditto” but that doesn’t express how much I appreciate the colours and your beautiful craftsmanship.
    Will hold you up in my thoughts and prayers. Also the techs and nurses and doctors so they do their best work.

      Thank you, Chris. At times like these, it’s good to have something really precise to work on so you concentrate and your brain stops running around the maze!

  16. claire93 says:

    this one has a very warm feel to it ^^
    Good luck for tomorrow!

    That block is like a first place ribbon winner in at a fair/art show/quilt block show if there was such a thing 🙂

  18. kymlucas says:

    It does look full of citrus juiciness!

  19. kymlucas says:

    Fingers crossed for you.

    I knew I would be behind reading and I see that medical things are moving along…gentle virtual hugs from across the ditch

    the bright secements (sp check what you do you mean…you can’t locate a suitable spelling!) okay I hope you get vibe. They remind me of that toy that you get a fair, ?windmill twirly things on a stick … and the blocks look like they are ready to fly and around and around…

    it’s alright I’m “tied to this here chair” and it’s not “catching” this “forgotten what spelling is or even what this twirly toy is”
