Final Folk Art Blocks Ready to Applique

Just finished cleaning up the mess in the bedroom where I have my good sewing machine.  Normally,  I do all my cutting, fusing and block preparation in the basement where there is lots of room for fabric and paper to fly.  Pretty close quarters in the bedroom and it was an absolute mess.  Didn't want to clean it up until they were all done and I finished them today. 
Now I can do my applique.  I think there are three done and six to go and all of the patterns are easy ones to work on. 


The color in the pictures isn't the best but you can get the idea.  Sashing and border will be the white of the black dotted print that I used in the large quilt top I just put together.  I just bought about five yards of it for backing so will have plenty for this little wallhanging which will only measure about 36" square.  Promise no more posts on it until together and quilted!  (Click to enlarge)

Wow Carol you have been busy - I'll have to come over and check them out (maybe next Tuesday!) I'm with you - if your going to make a mess in one area "wait" before cleaning (though I think I have some spots that will never get cleaned up LOL). J

I love your fabrics and your choices of where to cut into them. You have such an eye for this stuff. It really is your special talent. I am in Chicago at our hotel, rained most of the day, but never stopped Elle from running from shop to shop!!!! lol She was just a mere blur, with shopping bags.
