    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.

    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.

    Nicely done. The one who pieced the blocks surely would be pleased.

    I plan on putting it in the Coburg Quilt Show next year with the story of how I got the blocks.

    Exquisite! Your coordination of inner/outer borders really showcases those flowers. You kicked the colors up just the right notch! Can't wait to see the final results!!
