This group of blocks were all applique.
And they were all in the same row!

I started with Block 56. It had a light airy look that appealed to me.

Block 55 was next. Looks like I'm working backwards. I pieced the plate on the machine and appliqued it to the background.Original attributed to Sarah B. Deacon New Jersey 1842
Block 54 was a real challenge with lots of small pieces!
This is the original block made by Elizabeth H. Burr. Study it for a minute . . .
And this is mine. Do you see what I did? I transposed the red and yellow and didn't even realize it!
Blocks 53-56 are done and there's only 29 to go which is exactly the number of miles I have left to walk in the RBG Challenge. That's crazy!
My daughter had set me up with the MapMyFitness app to keep track of my time and distance. Here's one of our favorite weekend walks through the woods and along a mountain road :)
I was about to get down on the floor to stretch the other morning when the sunrise caught my eye. I put my jacket on and walked to the top of the driveway where I caught this view just before the colors faded away.
Enjoy your week!
