Another SKOW block done

My latest block: Daisies.


I'm leaving the last of the stem stitching until I have cut the block to the correct measurements.

6 blocks left to complete.

My plan is to finish preparing the blocks for applique this week. And get the rest of my sashings cut. If the blocks are prepared, they are portable. For all those waiting moments with kids!

That's the plan.

Cheers

Marg

maybe if you get a chance start on a little of the stripping.........it does take time so you could do a bit of both.........strips and applique.....mix it up a bit.......but once you start to get the strips in it really changes the quilt........brings it to life..........
