Some recent DJ blocks

Here's what I've been up to the past couple of weeks...

The first one is called Jacob's Windmill, was completely machine stitched (for a change) and has 13 pieces.
This next little one, took me a while to get done. It was just not a fun one for me to applique and has hung around undone for months, so it's very good to have her done! This is J10, Chieko's Calla Lily, was machine pieced and hand appliqued with 21 pieces.

 This was a fun and easy one called Granny Weaver (J6), was completely machine stitched again and has 25 pieces.

This last one was also easy. It's J7, Chicken Tracks and has 40 pieces and once again is completely machine stitched. This row has quite a few easy ones. I think row M makes up for that! I have about 19 triangles and 35 blocks left to do, which surprisingly puts me at about 75% done with this quilt. I've been working on it off and on for almost exactly 3 years. Next time I'll show you the progress on the design wall....

I've got a few more blocks prepped to applique, but they are side-lined for the moment. The next project is hand stitching down the binding on a quilt that was otherwise just finished today. Then it's to work on a progressive project due a week from tomorrow. I love being able to sew! Just wish there was more time for it!
