I Love It When a Plan Comes Together. . .

To quote Hannibal from the A-Team.  I had such great plans for the applique embroidery quilt, and so many times great plans fall by the wayside.  However, not this time.  Although the 4-1/2" blocks looked way too "tight" for a  12" churn dash block, I used the 7/8 rule, and did 15" blocks instead.  And they are perfect.  The 5-1/2" center block looks in exactly the right proportion.

Over the weekend, I finished the applique blocks using the fabric glue stick, and they turned out really good.  I have all 12 squared to 5-1/2".  I also got the HST's cut and sewn, ready to press and square.  And the strips pieces are sewn, ready to press and then cut to length.

I also finished the last block for the brown bag quilt.  They are all pressed, and ready to square up to 12-1/2".  I picked out the fabrics for sashing and borders, so hopefully I can get them cut this week.  All in all, I think it was a very productive weekend.  Hope you accomplished all that you wanted.  Toodles!
