    Wonderful blocks and don't worry about the toes or floors. We see more toes and floors on here than we do faces!

    Thanks for the compliments. It is a lot of fun to do. Never thought I would go with a black background but I like it a lot.

    Those are fantastic. Please show when finished and I really like a black background. It is so pretty against jewel tones.

    Gorgeous! I love the black background fabric.
    I do have the book but I found out I don't like needle turn applique and I have no idea how it looks with machine applique. I guess not as good as needle turn!
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Great job! I really love your version of block #11 it looks fantastic. It's nice to see some else still working on the AOTH. I have finished 14 blocks (not in order of the book) and am doing mine on black too.
    What size blocks are yours? Did you enlarge them or are you doing the 7" Blocks like in the book?
    The biggest risk is the one not taken
