First Three Applique Blocks

These blocks are from a UFO, a very old UFO.  I started it at least 8 years ago.  Because I joined an applique group a while ago I decided to finish this quilt before I start anything new.  It is from Eleanor Burns' Applique in a Day.
This block is called "Distlefink".

"Fruit Bowl"


"Cherry Wreath"

My darling Mimi is feeling much better.  She is helping me with my quilts and playing with her toys.  She also  chases her 'brother' all over the house.  He really needs the exercise, the little chubby wubby.  Mimi is toothless now and is still getting doses of prednisone for her auto-immune condition.  But she is eating on her own and often raids the hard kibble food dish.  She really likes it and is very good at scarfing down the little hard pieces without teeth.

It's always nice to be working on a UFO. Gives one a sense of accomplishment when a small part gets completes. Glad to hear Mimi is much better.

Your applique blocks look beautiful. So glad to hear that Mimi is back to her playful self and interesting that even being toothless isn't keeping her from the kibble. She's looking really good. Way to go Mimi.
