Almost all of the fabrics are tiny prints which you don't see much of these days. Actually, there are some very pretty, dainty little patterns.
I like this little bird block, but would have picked different fabrics for the flowers. Decided to let it be, though.
This one I almost screwed up and it was the most work with 44 little grapes to go around. I had cut the background larger than the pieced blocks. In trimming the applique block to fit the pieced one I messed up and cut it too small. I was not about to lose this one so I made it fit - the seam on the block is quite small but won't be handled a lot so should be fine. Senior moment?
Just a nice little block - easy to do and one that fits right in.Ditto this simple little pattern. Now I will figure out a border - there are a lot of 2" squares that I had cut out and I may work with those or I could do a vine with appliqued flowers. I certainly had no intention of working with this when I went to the basement this weekend, but it just seemed to be the designated task.
I wonder when I will quit wanting to do everything that I see--and I wonder if other quilters feel the same way. As I have said before, I will never be bored!
