It all depends on who you ask

Another quilt finished. This one a group project from one of my favorite Bees, Always Bee Learning. I asked my Bee mates to make improve curved "pod" blocks from the fabric that I sent in the mail. They got the technique here and could make them any size or shaped they desired.
