V is for Victory

Yea me!!!! I finished piecing the last blocks of 18.

Liberty Star, Airplane
Brave World, Victory Block (my least fav..)

However, this does not mean I finished a quilt. I've only BEGUN.

Now, back up the truck..... you might recall I made one block too small and had to redo it. That would be this:

The one on the right is the new one and you can easily see it is larger. Considerably. If you ever decide to make this quilt, remember to sew a scant 1'4", especially on this block. Tricky because there are ALOT of bias edges. I didn't have enough of the dark blue fabric to repeat the first one and the shop had sold out of the bolt...... note to self: buy slightly MORE than you need. You might NEED it!

Here is a shot of all 18:

They will be "on point" eventually but you get the general idea of the blocks themselves.

As I wrote, I have only begun. The Hard Part: Applique

I hates it. I do I do I do..... root canals are preferable but I love the way it looks. So I am getting busy and here is the first of the last of the (blurry) blocks. Avec Applique
