Block 5 Flagstones, and new Applique

Today, Saturday, is another Saturday Surprise Sampler Day!
This is the 5th pieced block, called Flagstones,

 and we have our third applique block, Oak Leaves and Cherries,

After this block, I am officially switching to fusible applique for both versions.  I didn't even add the cherries to the needleturn 1930's block.
but I did have a lot of fun auditioning where I wanted to put the red circles on the etchings version!

  1. morning michelle! the oak leaf and cherries block is so pretty. i managed to make it into the store yesterday and break every resolution i had made about not acquiring more fabric - the only thing that saved this week's and next week's grocery budget was that half the kittikins line didn't come in yet! can i leave a request at the store to have some of the 'cats in paisleys' and the border-type print set aside for me when it comes in? you know i love cats - and i have a grand-daughter named 'paisley'....seems perfect somehow! cheers, molly

  2. you know, these are so pretty, I might just have to try one!! And I made the "no more fabric till I finish something" promise too....but this doesn't really count does it?? it is not fabric, but a block right?? and good to expand my skills??

  3. As the Saturday sampler moves onward i am so sad I didn't sign up!! I love it in those 1930 fabrics!
