Another Applique Block and the End of the Month

I finished another of Eleanor Burns' applique blocks.  This one is called 'President's Wreath'.  So now I have 6 done and still have 6 to go.

It's the end of February already!  I have nothing totally completed for this month.  Hopefully next month I will.  My sewing machine is still not working as it should.  I need to take it back and see if they can fix it for good this time.  If not, I guess I will have to buy a new machine.  I will wait until the Creative Festival in April when I can compare the major competitors.  What kind of machine do you have?  Do you like it?  Would you recommend it?  Please let me know.

I have been working on the Scrappy Trip Along quilt.  Never thought I would say this, but I think I am getting tired of these blocks.  Maybe I'll put a border on it, of all the left over 2 1/2in squares that I couldn't use in the blocks.

Perhaps you got tired of the trip around the world because there are too many fabrics. I love your appliqued block and the saturated fabrics you've used. I would consider finished blocks as having completed something. My 'go to' sewing machine is a computerized Kenmore that I have had since the early 1980s. Before that it was a Singer and I have a new Singer as a back-up.

It is amazing how that Scappy Trip Around the World actually has so much definition. I've seen a few now. Great looking quilt.
