Just Some Blocks.........

Friday's Block Party block for this week is 'Union Square'. I found an appliqued heart in my scrap bin. I think it was left over from a baby quilt I made several years ago. I decided to use it in this block. Every scrap counts, you know! The other fabrics are also from my scrap bin, except for the blue. I actually have quite a lot of that and I just wanted to use some up. I did not find this block to be easy and I doubt if I will make any more. I think it took me almost 3 hours to complete, with lots of interruptions, of course!

And.... as if I am not busy enough, now that gardening season is here and I still have several charity quilts to finish before the end of this month and also the picnic quilt for my daughter, (sigh) I joined the one-a-day quilt along. The idea is to make a nine patch block a day.
That doesn't sound too difficult, does it? So far I am up to date. I have made 14 blocks and I think we are at day 13. Of course, I couldn't have done all that without the help of Felix!

Oh and I almost forgot.... I changed my header. Our peach tree is in bloom right now! I hope we don't get any more frost! The peaches from this tree are the best! Pretty isn't it?

You are going to get me to do that Friday Block party before it is all over. I have signed up at the beginning of the year and that was the blocks.

I love that cat paw sticking down in the second picture. They just have to get into the picture, don't they? LOL.
BTW, the block is very cute. Excellent way to use an old leftover block.

Your blue block is really beautiful. Nice use of scraps.

And I keep seeig these nine patches all over the place now. This is one of my favorite patterns. I should join in, but I have so much going on right now. Yours are looking great!
