I have 4 blocks to upload, 2 for last week and 2 for this week. I'm still one block behind as I should have 50 completed by week's end. It feels great to be at the half way point in my journey. I just pulled fabrics from FQs and scraps to make these blocks so they have no defined theme.

A great paper pieced block. I found that the 4 corner units would make a great block as well so it's two blocks in one.

I need to make some applique blocks so this one is easy. I didn't even reverse the pattern to make with fusible web as the original is hand applique. I've finally realized I can't do them all by needle turn with my current schedule; that's how I got behind making the blocks. I decided to use satin stitch instead of button hole stitch. I find the washed quilts hold up better with the satin stitch.

Cute and easy to piece block. Enjoy the strong contrast of the black print with the other fabrics.

This one is my favorite for the week. Love the appearance that the block is made on point.
P.S. - Anyone going to Paducah on Friday?
