BLOCKS WHENEVER

Not really block of the month projects.  More like a block whenever I feel like it.  I made two more blocks for "Sweet and Simple".  The first one is "Pear Tree".

The second block is "Bird's of a Feather".

Then I made the center block for Lori And Randy's medallion "sow-along".
I changed the vase handles just slightly to accommodate the needle turn applique method.  And I added a wing to the bird.  I like to use a stripe or zig-zag design for the wing.  I am ready for the part two instructions which will be pieced blocks.

I am stitching on a log cabin house block that I have put off making because it looked a bit challenging.  I hope to finish it today or tomorrow.  That's my update for today.  Back to the sewing room.

Your progress is fun to see. I love the little pear tree, but then I always like pears. The red zig-zag wing is a nice touch.

They are all beautiful blocks, but the pear tree block is definitely my fav. And I like your approach--"blocks whenever." At my house they would be called "blocks never."

Love the title of your post..blocks whenever. Things get done when things get done. A good philosophy. It keeps the pressure low.
