I adore this folk arty style. This is Kaela's block - with all the pink - and Shadow and Yumi (long gone) which she - we - adopted as kittens - that was so long ago.
I made the alternate blocks before anything else, and now I don't like them - too strong. Shouldn't they be "softer"?
My applique skills aren't advanced, but I sure love the process.
December rolls along... I hope you are all having a good month - we are almost giddy anticipating all our young adult kids being here for Christmas!
