I love the guard tower in this month’s castle quilt pattern. You can’t see it here, but this castle is situated by the sea. If you wanted to hide from your enemy and escape by sea, this would be the perfect castle to be in.
The 4 x 4 castle quilt blocks I made this month for swapping with four of my dear friends are done in yellow. When I was a little girl, I read a story in which there was a castle known as the Golden Fortress. It was named so because of the way it shone in the sunlight. Even though this one is a nighttime block, it reminded me of that story.
I just had to share this photo here with you. Tuffleberry is my shadow. Here he is ready to fall asleep on last month’s swap fabric while I was still working on it. I had to finally pack up because he fell asleep on the fabric shortly after. When I shared this on Flickr, my sweet friends were very understanding. I was told not to disturb him but to go buy new fabric. Perfect excuse, right?!
