Here are all 80 of the blocks that I have been making. The first two rows at the foot of the bed are sewn together - the remaining six rows are complete and ready to join the first two. I am loving the beautiful reds, oranges, hot pinks, golds,cerises and the occasional bits of green and blue with the black and white.
And the cabin is coming along. Instead of piecing the squares on point, I have fused them and will machine buttonhole applique them along with the other shapes. Still have a bird, heart and leaves to fuse. And also two windows. Then will come a narrow border and a wider border to be picked out yet. May do a border similar to the cabin by piecing with lots of pretty batiks. Kind of thinking that's the way I'll go. Beneath the cabin on the original piece there is "Est. 1969" - I could be wrong on that date. I take it that is for the year a couple was married and established their home. I may just applique a little spray of leaves and berries. Will figure that one out later. This is a fun one! (Click to enlarge)
