Blocks, Blocks and More Blocks

Another Lotto block arrived over the weekend from my friend Marilyn and I love this one so much!

I really wanted this block, but I hate flying geese and I happen to know that Marilyn is a pro at them, so she got this one and if you will notice, her points are perfect. That's Marilyn for you, a pro.

I'm also caught up on my DMBOM with blocks two and three finished and up on the design wall.

On deck: a few machine applique blocks for a Sew-A-Row with a Christmas theme. I'm a couple of weeks late on this one, but since the next rotation is the final one and I built some "fluff time" into the schedule, we'll be fine. The most recent American Quilter Magazine (from AQS) has two great articles on machine applique, both satin stitch and buttonhole and well worth looking for.

One 2008 Sew-A-Row is already complete, worked on by speed demons (not me for sure) and I'll show you a picture of that one tomorrow.

These blocks are marvelous.

And you are being very productive.

I'm jealous on both counts.

Wow, Marilyn's block is wonderful. The mystery blocks are pretty swell, too. I think I am regretting not signing up for that BOM.
You have been busy, GF!

Oh look, Nancy is jealous! :) Its not just me. hee.

I love flying geese (sometimes) and in this case I really really love them. What a great block. All these blocks are so great I'm just going to have to either (1) stop peeking or (2) make some myself!

Let me SEE... Oh did she say "see?" hee.
