Block 69. I really enjoyed making this one. I appliqued all the yellow petals first followed by the reds.

Block 70. Often it takes some studying to figure out how to tackle these blocks. I always trim the extra layer of fabric on the back.

Block 71 was paper-pieced. I have to remind myself every time to pay extra attention when ironing each section. It's so easy to not get it flat which causes problems in the end. That happened with this block. I had to rip out two long seams and re-do.

Block 72 was a bit of a challenge. I sort of cringed when I first saw this one and that's why I saved it till last. I must say I had my doubts but it all came together. A good thing because I wasn't doing it over!
Blocks 69-72 with only two more months to go . . . :)
You'll want to hop on over to Barbara B's Civil War Blog announcing her new Ladies' Legacy fabric line and Ladies' Aid NY Sampler BOM which starts in 2 weeks. I'll be making blocks using my repro stash. The large appliques are so much fun! Hope you'll join in!
