More "Life is Beautiful" blocks

This week I concentrated on the "Life is Beautiful" blocks. I finished stitching down all of the embroidered blocks. I cut out all the backs of the circles and prepped the applique and started stitching those down to their 4-patches. I have several left to sew down, which I will do on my lunch hour and evenings. I then have to cut those backings out and prep 48 small circles to applique in the sashings.




I also finished another "Berry Picking Party" block. I left out the monogrammed initials the pattern had and will change it to the initials of the recipient of this quilt.
I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving weekend. Back to the ole grind tomorrow!
Have a happy, healthy week!
