    Here is my next step. There were two applique in a row, so I pulled to pineapple and did all three together. I'm getting better with the applique tools, starting to look more like the videos I've watched, instead of me thinking "how do the do that?"

    I didn't want to deal with the tight corners on the pineapple top, so I cut five separate leaves and overlapped them.

    Cathy, those blocks are amazing! I just finished the pineapples yesterday. Will try to take a picture today (it's gloomy so may not show well).

    Here are a few more Dear Jen blocks. I'm taking a little break to work on other projects but will get back to DJ. It's an intense process!

    All of your blocks look spectacular, you guys!

    I am starting a Kingwell pattern soon...primarily one I can do while traveling. I’ll be on the road a lot over the next couple of months so I decided to start her EPP pattern Smitten. Lots of different shapes and a clutter mess in layout....lol...so Kingwell. Lol.. I’ll be using a stash of Liberty fabrics for primary fabrics and blenders from stash. I bought the EPP kit, which includes acrylic templates..thank goodness... I’ll share as I go..

    I just looked up the pattern - very pretty! I'm so glad you were able to get the templates, I felt at such a disadvantage not having good templates when I did my quilt.

    Here is another trio of blocks - I am doing slight modifications to make them easier to sew my machine. This pattern is designed to be hand sewn, and part of the challenge for me is to do it all by machine.

    Yes, I'm finding machine sewing these blocks difficult and time consuming, so every strip of 3 I make feels like a real achievement. Your blocks look great, Cathy!

    Your blocks are beautiful, Macybaby. I really like the different background colors in this pattern.

    I started JKís EPP pattern using my Liberty stash. I am really enjoying this project...I just work on in the evenings and can pack it up easily for traveling. I have just 2 more of this large Block 1 to make.
