Amazing. Even during a seriously long weekend that was jam packed with family stuff, I still managed to squeeze in enough time to finish 19 Fleur-de-lis blocks! I had two little nephews that kept trying to help me out too. I let them experiment with my snippers while their momma was gone. Yep, they cut thread. Nope, they don't cut fabric very well do they? hehe
Earlier in the week I cut the plain fabric squares, setting triangles and all the pieces for the 9-Patch squares. Then I sewed the 9-Patch blocks together and prepped all the applique pieces for the Fleur-de-lis blocks.

There are a couple extra 9-Patch blocks, but I want to have some options whenever I actually put the quilt top together. I am still a little nervous about the DARK element in this quilt with all of the lovely blues and greens.*wink

In November, I will have been working on this quilt (off & on) for three years. Wowsers! The end is almost in sight! So many memories in the making of this quilt. I highly recommend a forever project for everyone! I am the late one linking up to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching again. The work gets done but I don't go anywhere near my computer on some Sundays....
