Block 7 is complete. This week I will be cutting for blocks 8 and 9. After that I am not sure what I will do. The pattern screams applique to me BUT the author, for some reason, placed 3 pieced blocks in the top and I just do not understand why. I do not like them but I am not sure I want to design 3 blocks to insert in their places. It may just end up being a smaller quilt or a wall hanging........not sure yet.
