Ruby Red Dot Blocks 3 and 4

Wow, got my appliqué blocks completed early this month.  The cutting out is the most time consuming part of these blocks. I am using freezer paper and starch to fold the edges over.  Really should of just used fusible interfacing and left raw edges these blocks would have gone a whole lot faster.  These blocks went much better then last month so I am very happy.  I do not recommend using freeze paper and glue, which is what was recommended in this modern appliqué book I picked up.  Does not work nicely at all.  

Here are the first four blocks together.  Yes, the sun did come out in Michigan today,  Amazing. 

Thank you for stopping by and visiting. 



  1. Wowza! Those are gorgeous. I can't believe you are folding under!!! Holy smokers.
    Congrats on finishing early.

    1. Thanks Carole. I know totally crazy but since I started now I have to finish the same way or it would drive me crazy. I don't think I will will do appliqué in this fashion again though, no use doing something the hard way when there is a perfectly good easy way to do something.
