Progress

I have been working away at the appliqué. Some still  need the embroidery done and some are for future months. I prepped all the smaller appliques at the same time and have been stitching them as time permits.  I have a few more appliqué blocks to prep before I start cutting squares from the left over fabrics. My plan is to complete the blocks to date over the next few weeks. 
Initially I was not sure how my fabrics would look but now I have some done I am very pleased with them. The starter for me was a pack of 5 fabrics I won last Christmas.

The colors look great together. I really like the green fabric you used in your hearts.

they look great Marilyn, how good to have a little starter pack to get going with. a good idea doing the repeat blocks together (I did the same) and it's nice having them done for when you want to use them later...
