Egyptian block finished !? Last april I showed you this CQ block I made to embellish during Sharon B's lesson at the Adventure in Crazy Quilting in CT. Maybe you know that I love to make themed CQ blocks and because of the riots in Eqypt I picked this theme. My DH and I have always been very interested in the Eqyptian culture and history and I love the colors of Eqypt, the rich gold and turquoise that I combined with dark brown and terra colors. During Sharon´s lesson I added this to the block.The last weeks I have been working on it now and then and at a moment I thought I had finally finished it. After seeing the picture I made of it, I decided I had to add something to give it a more Egyptian look and decided to add an `all seeing eye´..... It looks a bit more Egyptian now, don´t you think so? I don't know what to add more, if you have an idea please let me know!

Wilma, this turned out beautifully. I don’t think you need to add anything - it’s absolutely perfect the way it is! Hugs, Cathy

It is absolutely beautiful...I really enjoyed all those real eye-candies...except the news related with Allie's quilts.

Wilma, we did an Egypt themed block swap on the CQ4Newbies group a couple of years ago. I stitched some hieroglyphs, including one for the word "love". It was vaguely pornographic. So I'd suggest adding hieroglyphs, but you've got to be careful, LOL!
The block is beautiful as it is.
