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!
