    This week is also a mix, but heavy in applique. If you aren't used to melons by now..you will be after this week!

    J10- I pp'd the background and then back basted all the melons. I found it helpful to mark around the outside of the block showing the 1/4" seam allowance so that none of my melons "wandered" outside from where they need to be.

    L12- The only difficult part of this block is getting those little tris. I printed the "block", then I trimmed off the corners to include the little tri and pp'd them. I then sewed these onto the block...easy peesy!

    M7- More applique! I did this one in layers. I started with my beige background, then I used the back basting method to add the brown "clover" shaped piece. I then situated a black circle on top of the "clover"..then added 4 beige melons on top of the black circle. It was a little thick prior to trimming out the back..but it turned out fine.

    RS8- Another UGH! I back basted the bottom section, then added the 2 hearts in the same method. I extended the lines on the little triangle and pp'd the top section. All quilted...it will be fine.

    Ooooo! Elle, these are great. So many curves this week! I had thought that G-6 was the worst block uilt I worked on J-10 - not a straight seam in the whole lot! Yours turned out beautifully!

    I admire everyone who can stick with this project. I just love seeing everyone's blocks. It gives me hope that I can start my DJ next year. Thanks for sharing.
