The mystery of piecing Barbara, all cut to the right size but when they are pieced something strange happens! Don't despair, I am sure it happens all over the world. It definitely happens in Australia, I will bear witness to that! The blocks look great.
I am looking at the same type of thing here. Somehow we will get it all figured out.The Soot and Ashes blocks are coming along nicely. Wonder if it is too late to join in?
Love your work!! You have some lovely WIPs and finished pieces.
I love your blocks! I'm sure you'll be able to handle the applique. Gee, I can't believe she went on vacation and is making us wait. LOL
