We started last spring (2014) and I worked diligently on my first block, any flower of my choice for S, over the summer. I assembled the flower, but did not finish it until June 2015 as the quilting and leaf had me stumped…

I finished my second block, a house block for N’s neighborhood in October 2015. A sweet little house block that kinda looks like my home!

I finished my third block, a 2-color Carpenter’s Wheel, in November. Even though we chose which & how many block(s) to make, this one was pretty straight forward. This one has been revealed for E’s Red & White Quilt.

My fourth block, a pieced basket of appliqued flowers for D, has been fairly tricky since I didn’t follow the templates and designed my own bouquet. I decided on peonies as my flower because they remind me of my Grandmother and I love all the heavy-scented petals. Everything came out lovely, including sweet little birds!
