Another 1.5 blocks done ...


Although I had hoped to have finished off three new blocks for my 'Some Kind of Wonderful' quilt and  have four prepped for the needle turn appliqué ... I only got one finished and completed the appliqué on a second block.

I love how my "old blue jeans" block came up, though instead of a peace sign on the left leg I put in a butterfly.


I also got to work on my "chocolates" block, but unfortunately I only finished off the appliqué.  I actually enjoyed the challenge of getting that circle pretty close to properly-round!!


So almost 5-down, 19 more to go ... I am aiming to get at least 8 more blocks finished this week.
