{fwqal} end in sight

YES!!! i am DONE piecing these bad boys. with half of the blocks already sashed, we should have a quilt top so soon!!! i'm so glad to have this project {almost} behind me.
 101 {single wedding ring}
 38 {four winds}

there were a few {3} blocks that just didn't quite gel with the other blocks, so redo blocks were in order. i love the blocks on the right so much more.

redo 11 {broken dishes}
redo 71 {puss in the corner}
redo 81 {snowball}

when i first began these quilt blocks, there were some of the blocks that did not appeal to me. i'm not a bouquet/vase/basket kind of girl. i also lost the templates to a few. melinda's blocks have been sheer inspiration for me throughout this project. she, too, made some substitutions for her quilt. i decided to follow, using her as quite the inspiration source for most of these blocks. i really am glad i did. these are some of my favorite!
 {card trick} i've been meaning to make this block
 {double T}
 {greek cross} 
without the HST's in the corners. i was really ready to be done piecing
 {ms. fay's friendship block} love this one
 {night vision}
 i have been DYING to do this block after seeing this mini quilt. it was a little tricky, and it's not perfect {notice bottom), but i'm so glad to have this block included
 {prairie flower} 
this one too has been on my list of to-do's since seeing this mini quilt and this pillow. i love this block.
