As Promised

I finally finished block #2 of my Primitive Garden wool applique. As I promised, here is the picture of my second finished block......
Next it's on to the Geranium in a pot. Since that block is only 8 1/2 by 10 1/2, I hope it doesn't take as long as the last one. It was worth it, I think. My goal is to have the top finished by this time next year. Think I'll make it? Oh well, goals are good aren't they? I've never been much of a goal maker.....that's next year's New Years resolution, to make and try to keep goals. I've heard that's a good thing to do. We'll see............
I also finished the last quilt that I had on the frame. I really have to stop making every quilt into a custom job. And I wonder why it takes me so long to finish them, a simple panto would have been much faster. Would a panto have been as nice? The minute I saw the border, it turned into a custom job.

See what I mean?

Sorry about this picture, it's not so good, I hope you can see the star in the blue block.
I did have fun playing with my Circle Lord templates......I used them to do the border and the stars. There's also a design in the flag blocks done with the Circle Lord but it doesn't show up in the pictures.
Since I'm off from school for a couple of weeks I hope to have more to show you in the very near future.
For now, I hope everyone has a Happy and prosperous New Year.
Happy Quilting!
