Another SKOW block done

 This block really stumped me as this quilt is for my grand-daughter Madie and she didnt want the sewing block so i asked her what she wanted and she said something to connect the block to calesthenics.
 So that made me think,lol,i could find lots of things for ballet but not so much for calesthenics,then i found this on the internet and i thought this is going to be hard to needle turn,but once i got going it was okay.
Madie hasnt seen this block yet so i hope that she likes it,and another block bites the dust,lol.
cheers shez xx
