Block number/name: M-4 “Stepping Stones”
Date completed: June 21, 2010
Number of pieces: 49
Notes on block: It wasn’t until after I started stitching this one that I realized how many pieces are in this little block. In any case, it took a long time for me to put together. This is also one of the only blocks I’ve done so far that required a partial seam (around the center square). And it seemed so sweet and innocent when I was cutting!
Block number/name: RS-13 “Marlene’s Pirouette”
Date completed: June 22, 2010
Number of pieces: 21
Notes on block: Last night was a really productive stitching evening for me. While we watched television, the baby slept on papa’s lap and I got to sew (our new favorite show is Arrested Development… so funny!!!). I finished M-4, nearly completed this one (I appliquéd the tiny triangles this morning), and got a good start on the next one (TR-6). So now I’m nearly caught up again. Yay!
This is block number 199 for me! It seems like a good time to share a progress report:
