I've been very busy lately, so busy in fact that I haven't made any blocks in over a month! I'm playing catch up again. I need 12 blocks to be on schedule so I got busy yesterday. Here of 5 of them.
Block #110 on page 26
This one will be a mini wall hanging for my kitchen. I decided not to stitch around the appliques at this point but rather during quilting.
#195 on page 69
This one is my favorite block in this batch as I'm partial to log cabin quilts, especially those with 1" finished strips. Sure wish I had time to make this in full size but I already have a log cabin started from a year or two ago that's not finished.

Whew! I was so glad to get this one pieced. I didn't follow the directions, making two "section 2" units instead of one. What was wonderful in my error is that the same pieces are used in section 2 and section 3 so I just had to frog stitch, you know, "ribbit".

Again, not paying attention I had to "ribbit" and it took a little longer than necessary. I guess I need to bet my groove back. Nice block that one day I'll make in scraps. This time I used a fun black and white print for the background.

I was so excited that this block went together correctly the first time out! LOL This is a quick block to make with dramatic effect. Try it.
I have a busy week planned as I have a Sampler Quilts lecture on Wednesday. Along with my regular scheduled activities, I don't see much sewing in my future. And, I just remembered I need to send something to the Scrap Quilting Club regarding this week's project. Gotta go!.
