With this month's blocks completed the first 4 rows at both the top left and bottom right are now done!
Three challenging appliques and a broderie perse.

It always takes a little time to get in the swing of appliqueing the block I'm working on. This time after I finished the center wreath, I appliqued the top right pink leaf/petal before adding the other two and realized it wasn't centered the way it was supposed to be but I chose not to re-do it. I did much better with the other corners.

This is the original block with a lengthy sentiment in the center . . .
. . . and this is mine. I totally changed course from the original :) All the blocks in this quilt are set on point.

This block was definitely a challenge--and time-consuming. I finished it in the nick of time--yesterday! The next set of blocks is available Friday at Sentimental Stitches. Check out what other goodies Gay has to offer on her website. So many projects to choose from!
On another note . . .
My daughter and I hiked Sunday morning in search of wildflowers in the snow. We saw this Red Trillium . . .
. . . and Saxifrage. So sweet among the moss :)
That's it for now. Enjoy your week and, hopefully, warmer weather with lots of sunshine!
