Another Applique Block

Started another applique block yesterday afternoon and finished it today. Three more to go I think. The bud on this one was a bit of a challenge but I am satisfied with the way it turned out. Not perfect..but that's okay.

We were supposed to go to a quilt guild board meeting this evening, but we had precipitation in constantly changing form all day..snow, sleet, rain...back and forth. By meeting time the temps were dropping to below freezing again and we figured it was going to turn into a skating rink outside. Apparently it did, so I'm glad we didn't attempt to go out. As my friend Jacquie, is discovering, storms aren't nearly as bad when you are retired and don't have to go out in them!

Hope all my friends in the Mid-west are able to stay in and stay safe. It's a big storm system.

Very pretty block Mary and I think the bud looks fine! We got all snow here 10 inches and more on later tonight. Actually, I just looked out and it has started already.
