Red Delicious Blocks 2 and 3 Added

The last couple of days I have done blocks two and three of this block of the month from Esther's Blog http://estheraliu.blogspot.com/. Really loving the reds together. The bottom block is to have circles at each of the points on the flowers and I probably will use little red buttons. On the sketch of the layout for the quilt, this block does hang down. On the fifteenth of each month a new block will be posted - they are a delight. The blocks are stuck on a really old piece of mounting board that I covered with flannel many years ago to use as kind of a portable "design wall" long before I had even heard of design walls. I have used this for countless projects and it is getting pretty shabby!

By the way, this is my post #200. I really enjoy doing this and hope you enjoy it, too.

Now I really have to get my playing card wallhanging for Quilters Squared Quilt Show in the works!! We have to have them all done for the March meeting which is right before the show.
I think I know what it will be - had better be sure pretty soon! (Click to enlarge)

Gorgeous is right! I'm still cutting out my freezer paper templates for blocks two and three.

HI Carol,

What lovely blocks. I especially love the idea of little buttons at the tip of Nighshade... what a great idea. I havent seen that used yet. And yes, Nightshade is hanging correctly, it will all make sense at the end of the Mystery. Thank you for joing in, when I see the beautiful blocks quilters are personalising in their own way, its truly inspiring! Thanks again for sharing

Happy Quilting
