More Hand Stitching...Bring Me Flowers

Another Bring Me Flowers block complete - except for the flower centers. I have cut them out...

I've made six blocks so far. Yesterday I made the templates for the next two blocks - hope to cut out the fabric pieces later today.

And yesterday I bit the bullet and prepared the pieces for another Farmer's Daughter block. Another block made from Gardenvale scraps.

I got a few questions about why I'm making another block. It looks like enough in this picture?

IF I sew them together like this, I'll need HUGE corner pieces in the 4 corners - much bigger than the setting triangles needed along the sides. Do you see how the bottom and top rows have 2 blocks? Well, I need the bottom and top rows need to have 3 blocks, making those 4 corners pieces smaller. And if I make one more block that will work without sacrificing the size of the quilt. Hope that makes sense. 

I'm glad to hear that many of you have 2 books going at the same time. So far it's working great for me!

What are you working on today? I've decided to make it a marathon Marmalade day! Let's see how far I get!

This is a BIG week in our neighborhood - The Barbisol PGA golf championship is being held here. Very exciting! We have to have parking placards in our cars to get to our house. Hubby is volunteering once the tournament starts on Thursday, but the golfers, caddies, and families are already here, getting ready for the practice round. Note to self: stay away from the pool - it will be CROWDED!

Hope you have a fab day!!!!
