I wasn't too pleased with my previous choice of background fabric so I found another one among my stash :) I think this is more suitable AND prettier.
This is a block from Lesson 2 in Elly's book. It is named "Hearts and Leaves Papercut". In the book there's an inscription from an antique block accompanying this block. It goes like this: "This patch - compassion - friendship and esteem Mingling with many as a token, That Friendship's ties are yet unbroken."
