Moving right along . . .
Only 33 to go. The long center diagonal row (beginning lower left) and blocks on either side are the ones that still need to be done.

There are thirty-two little pieces in this block. This time I turned under the seam allowance on the inner part of the circle and appliqued the heart to the background. The last time I did one of these plate blocks I did the whole center part separately and appliqued it over the inner edges. Make sense?

I actually made this one first after re-drawing the curved lines of the yellow pieces so they met the red star. Loved working on this one! It's a happy block!

Some days are better than others when it comes to sewing blocks. I ended up ripping apart the first version and sewing it again. That was before I appliqued the center petals :)

I almost ran out of fabric on this one and had to piece the fabric for the lower square and triangle. That never happens to you, right???
Blocks 49-52 are done. The new set was just posted on Sentimental Stitches. So I'm off and running :)
Two weeks ago on a warm sunny day we grabbed some lunch and went down to the Jay Covered Bridge which was built in 1857.
On hot summer days people sit on the rocks and enjoy the cool water.
Look how clear it is!
When our kids were little we made Christmas ornaments from dried Milkweed pods.
