Pharlemia, the Mystery BlockLook at this block and there is only the slightest trace of familiar patchwork. You certainly do not see a template-friendly face looking back! How will we make it?
Then you see the name and she is even more exotic and mysterious. But after a few months and a closer look, she becomes quite template friendly. We think you will like how she adapted to templates.
Fortunately, we were able to get one picture of a very lovely Pharlemia before she slipped away into the night. Yes, we have a picture! We know she was here! But Pharlemia has disappeared! We've looked for her, to no avail. Where could she be?
• hiding in the studio?
• jumped to her death in a waste basket?
• caught up by batting that is now sewn in a quilt?
Unfortunately, Pharlemia remains the aloof mystery block that will not be part of my quilt.
