    I bought these machine appliquéd blocks at a silent auction in Coburg, Oregon at the quilt show. Have had them a little over a year and decided it was time to do something with them. So here is the quilt I did this weekend with those blocks.

    I have made a stencil of the appliqué so I can quilt it in the plain blocks. I will quilt it with a variegated thread that has all those beautiful colors in it.

    Oh how pretty! I love the windblown lillies blocks. I am glad you are setting it into such a beatutiful setting. It sure is deserving of that.

    Those are beautiful blocks and your idea to quilt it is a winner. I can't wait to see it when you finish.

    Thank you everyone. I just didn't know what to do with them for the longest time. I finally got on my EQ6 and started playing. Found the fabric in my stash, except the setting blocks.

    Thank you RedGarnet222. I didn't know the name of the blocks. Someone put a lot of time into them. I hope I did them justice.
