Believe it or not these are all supposed to be oak leaves. If I do four blocks each month it's going to take a couple years to get them all finished, but that's OK. No reason to rush - I want to enjoy the process.

Tonight I prepped four appliqué blocks for the civil war quilt. All the blocks in this quilt are very funky - very childlike folk art drawings. We couldn't even tell what some of the designs in the blocks are supposed to represent. This is the first antique quilt Eileen showed us in the first class of the series, and we all went nuts over it. We must have spent at least 10-15 minutes examining all the blocks.
