    OHHH don’t want to check this blog out too often. There are way too many wonderful blocks that I could die for and I just don’t have time. It is going to be beautiful when you finish.

  2. That looks like something I can do! It says “beginner” on it…

  3. The fabric in that block is fantastic and the design really sets it off!

    I pieced my squares and appliqued the melons too… seemed a much easier solution to handpiecing.

    I like this a lot Kate… it’d be a keeper if it was me!
