Vintage Hand Appliqued Flower Blocks

My friend Sheri gave me these vintage hand appliqued flower blocks many moons ago...

They sat in a project box for many more moons...

And as you know I'm trying to diminish my UFO pile...

So I grabbed the blocks one evening and added a scrappy border in fabrics that were already setting out on my cutting table...

That's gorgeous! And good for you for trying to finish some unfinished projects. I'm trying to do the sane thing with some quilt tops I've had lying around - time to quilt and bind!

Just beautiful! I'm in a finishing mode at the moment too. Just got all my tops basted bar 1 and that one is too big to do on my own... Then it will be just a matter of getting through the endless UFO boxes and get them finished :o)
