It's Toady Time!

Applique Block 1 Done
for the

I had sew many beautiful fabrics from

to choose from!

I took my time playing with these and decided on fabrics, colors and placements.

I also made a small design change and decided to make a butterfly instead of a fly.

I decided it had to be purple, a colors that does not appear in the pretty
 Farm Girl fabrics.
No problem, though.
I have a lovely collection of Riley Blake brights 
to add to the quilt ... :)

Then it was time to applique ...

My applique skills are improving, I think.

I admit I still feel all thumbs.

This block took all day yesterday and it was after midnight before I gave up and went to bed
 and then all morning today just to finish up the butterfly and the smallest pieces on toady's eye.

I got another day behind in my 365 Block Challenge.

I am very happy with my cheery 

Thanks, Amy!

It may only be free for another week though, so get it now.

Next week we will have two more free blocks to add to our garden from:

Carol – Just Let Me Quilt
Ready and waiting and looking forward to the March blocks!

Must go play 365 catch-up ... Happy Quilting!
