One Step Closer

"In Full Bloom" is growing ever closer to completion.  Here are the corner blocks added to the double four patch row.  Can I just say "LOVE IT????"
The vine border looks a little strange as the corners are not attached.  I couldn't figure out another way to do most of the applique ahead of time and still  be able to easily attach the borders.  So we'll finish the vine, add more berries/leaves and add the flowers.
And even though it rained ALL weekend, we managed to have a fabulous time playing with this little punkin :).  She's almost 18 months old and absolutely adorable.
She and her Nana Girl got along wonderfully.
Of course she brought along her parents :).
And she loved playing with her Granddaddy.
What a great time we had.
Now it's back to work and more applique.
Have a great day,
Karen
