CATCHING UP ON SALLY POST BLOCKS

We recently had a week's vacation in Myrtle Beach, North Carolina.  I took time to prep the applique parts for all the rest of the Sally Post blocks.  I spent a lot of time stitching on them.  There were four blocks I missed making a part for so those were stitched up to the point of the missing part and then finished after the trip.  Of the 36 block patterns, I have two left to make.  Below are pictures of the newly completed blocks on the design wall.









 I didn't get a very good picture of this one.




And the penguin!  This is a block for the Country Threads "Noah" pattern.

Back to the sewing room!

Lovely sally post blocks!! I'm still plodding along with mine - might get them done if I actually worked on them :). Great job & I love your applique work and fabrics. Looks like a 'productive' vacation.

What lovely work! My favorite are the blocks with the green fabric that has a bit of black in it--so striking! Your penguin looks very fun too.:)
