Monday Making

I took a break on table mats this week.
I was happily sucked into a quilt along.
I haven't joined one of these for a very long time!
This one caught my attention.

I am hoping to brush up on my applique!

This first block was a challenge for me...but...
I was like a dog with a bone!!
I couldn't sit still until it was D.O.N.E!!!

Now...I have to wait until Wednesday for the next installment.
I thought the second pattern would come out LAST WEDNESDAY!
Oh boy, was I disappointed when I found out I had the wrong day.

While I wait I've been working on this old UFO.

The vintage dresden plates were all appliqued.
They JUST needed some sashing.

At first I thought I'd be sashing with one color
and using another color for cornerstones.
This quilt was calling for SCRAPS!!!

I may add borders to top and bottom to make it twin sized.
Time will tell!
I'll let it simmer a bit.
What are YOU making this week???
