Wonky Castle BOM - February

What was your inspiration? This is the castle block for February. The swap group's block for this month is done in the color teal. I fell in love with castles while reading my storybooks as a little kid and I still romanticize them. I thought it will be fun to run a block of the month with free Wonky Castle paper piecing patterns. You can follow the event at my website at - http://www.whimsandfancies.com/wonky-castle-bom-february/ If you decide to participate, I would love for you to share your photos on the Whims And Fancies Flickr group at - http://www.flickr.com/groups/whimsandfancies/ Have fun!!

Q&A with soma1773

patz in suffolk asked:
This is quite stunning! It first made me think of an old cotton mill I once saw in Derbyshire (England) - a very historic place. But then, when I saw that it was a castle, it made me think of the Castle at Firmoy in Scotland which used to belong to Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Very evocative and extremely interesting!
soma1773 answered:
Thank you!! Funny you mentioned Scotland because this one was modeled after the Eilean Donan castle. The Scottish castles are very different looking, I think. I tried to look up the Castle at Firmoy, sadly couldn't find any. I will make a note of the cotton mill in Derbyshire for out trip to England!
