Thank You all so much. Very nice comments, every one! I finished them up after posting this morning, and I still hate them. I suppose it is when something just doesn't cooperate, it becomes a thorn to look at.
Yes Ruth Camp, the center block was appliqued on over the sewn blocks and then I cut away the back to get rid of the bulk. I quilted them and then took 2 months trying to find that dark green, almost grey to bind it with. If you are serious about wanting them they are yours. pm me...
I have been going though all my ufo's and finishing them since the beginning of the year. So, another one down.
I made a double ended pot holder today with some tiny old paper pieced sail boat blocks. They are coming out cute. So all is not lost. :D I really needed to have something go right for me today. I think it is I miss my dad .. He passed away a year ago.
