Red Delicious Block of the Month

Some time ago, probably in November, I found a free block of the month designed by Esther Aliu, a designer from Australia, on Esther's Blog and I have been downloading each one as they are made available each month. So far there have been three. As a new one is put up, the old one is taken down. Number 3 is up there and the fourth will be posted on the 15th of the month. The idea is to make the blocks from your stash without buying any new fabric. The original is done in red but any color or colors can be used. Since red is one of my favorites, the other day I gathered my reds and today did the first block - machine buttonhole, of course, instead of hand applique. There is a link to her blog on my sidebar if you are interested. The blocks are cute and the arrangement she shows for them is really nice. (Click to enlarge)
