Found it!

What a relief! The block on the right is the one that I struggled with...and we won't even pay attention to the fact that it's not very square! As Brenda says, "Better finished than perfect!" Keeping the block from you know where company was another applique block that I'd forgotten I'd completed. It hasn't been trimmed down yet.

It's another beautiful day here in Southern NJ, sunny, cool and breezy. The clouds are starting to roll in though and the weekend is supposed to be a washout. Maybe THEN I will get some sewing done!

I just received the book "Create Your Perfect Quilting Space" by Lois Haller. What beautiful studios are pictured! Makes me want to recreate my spaces...the longarm studio (AKA living room) downstairs and my little quilting studio upstairs. I'm so fortunate to have 2 rooms in my house dedicated to my quilting! I know the longarm studio needs a makeover, I've chosen my paint color and will be painting this summer. There is only so much furniture rearranging that can take place, though, when the room is 18 feet long and the machine is 14 feet! Upstairs, I know I can arrange it better...and that room won't need painting! It even has the same stenciled border as one of the rooms in the book, just in different colors. All in good time...

I just bought that book too. Some great ideas in there. Isn't it wonderful? Makes me want to get to work on my quilting space.

Love the applique blocks and the sister's choice blocks.

So glad the mising blocks are back in the fold! That one looks like a stinker to piece. Again, I love the colors you've chosen!!!

Wow Carolyn...that block does look quite testy. It's sewn and then appliqued? Looks like lovely mitered seams an the edges too. YUMMY!...not! Yikes. I have the Dear Jane book and will eventually start making one in the not too distant future. I'll keep your blocks in mind when I start sewing!
