Barkcloth for Cheryl

I'm busy catching up. First, Cheryl. I love barkcloth too, so narrowing down the inspiration was hard, but I picked the shapes I loved and went for it.

First, I pieced in the arc shapes, then I let Cheryl's background fabric lead me and I went with that Philco tv shape that I'd still have in my living room if it would get a station. I fused and appliqued that. I would love to do a whole quilt of blocks like these. Thanks for the push, Cheryl. I can always count on you for that.

The hardest part was cutting the shape of the final block. I learned...I have crappy scissors that desperately need sharpening.
