FNSI on retreat

Wow ,, it's been a while since I have been on here... But I will catch up on  some posts...I joined in with Wendy for FNSI.. I spent it on retreat with about 20 of us happily sewing away with real time friends.

I made great progress on my blocks for March and April.. nearly all caught up..

I thought this block would give me trouble but it went together really well. They are finished 1 1/8th 
Strips... I'm happy with this one...

Here are my Dear Jane blocks I got prepared for the appliqué. I can sit n sew at home of an evening without having to use the machine...
I didn't want to curve piece the centre of this block. I decided to appliqué it instead...

I only have to stitch the centre square under. It is only a one inch square cut out in the centre.

This block has some little curves....

 This block has little melons sewn onto the centre square.

Have a look to see what others got up to.
