More blocks and one more day!!!!

I worked on 2 more blocks today. The pointy ends on this Dresden flower are easier to do than curved ends. I used invisible thread and sewed this onto the square with the machine. Still have more stitching to do on the one below, but I needed to stop for the night. I am blanket stitching this one with the machine too.
I really like both of these blocks...hope they look good in the setting I have planned.

Tomorrow is my last day to work at school for the summer...I also have a class tomorrow night. I am ready to have a little more time to myself and to quilt.

Oh my! These blocks look fantastic with those fabrics. They just light up. I really want to see the outcome of all this hard work.

Beautiful blocks! I'm very curious to see your sampler - it will be elegant with these fabrics!

Those teals and greens and golds are fabulous fabrics together. I'm sure the sampler will be as stunning as these blocks.

Jean both blocks are lovely. I love your color selection. Congrats on your last day.
Four full days and 3 1/2 days for me. I am so tired I wish I could just stay home.

Wow!! Those are really beautiful! I love Dresden Plate although it always reminds me of quilted sunflowers! I wonder where the Dresden Plate name came from???
