I think I found a better background fabric. It just jumped into my cart at the last trip to Joann's. It was all I bought, really, it was. I like it with the blocks I have made. I think I am going to make a 12 block sampler.
I think that the Scottie dog was a little harder than I expected. I did hand sew it on with pearle cotton. Applique is not fun for me.
I am going back to Joann's tomorrow, I have another appointment in TC. It is a good thing that the nearest Joann's is 45 miles away. I am also going to the quilt shop over there. It has a FQ sale starting tomorrow. When I was there Wednesday, I scoped out the ones I want. I think I will get about 5 FQ's. The deal is 10 for $20. That is sale priced, her fabric is very expensive but very, very nice. Mom is driving me over and we are going to split the deal.
