Saturday Surprise Blocks for Sept 24th
Also, I'm not sure if I ever explained properly about the applique blocks. Each year we put out 20 pieced 12-inch blocks. They never use applique or paper-piecing in them. However, this year, as something new to try, I decided to offer some companion applique blocks. They will use the same 2 groups of fabrics, and also finish at 12 inches. They are the same price as the pieced blocks, $5.50 when you pick them up from the store, or $6.50 mailed out. They are available at the same time as the odd-numbered pieced blocks-- so that the 1st block, Crossed Tulips was out on Sept 10th, and the 2nd applique block will be available on October 8th alongside the third pieced block. I hope this makes it all clearer!
This was the first applique block:
