APPLIQUE BLOCKS FROM A LORI SMITH PATTERN

I have switched to another project as I have a short period of time to make a small quilt for a trade.  Here are the first two applique blocks that I have made.


I am using patterns from a Lori Smith pattern called "Heritage Sampler".  You can see the whole pattern on Lori's website here.  I am selecting five blocks from the pattern set.  I plan on using the red, green, and yellow color scheme on all.  I hope to stitch a block a day, if all goes well.

Have a good rest of your day and take time to stitch a bit.
