Grandmothers Choice blocks....

There have been 23 blocks published in this BOW so far. I have been plugging along and am happy to say I have 23 blocks completed!
This week's block is called Girl's Joy. The four corners are trimmed down to 2.5 inch squares and the middle into a 4.5 inch square. It went together very easily - I think it took longer to pick out the fabrics on this than to actually sew it.

Here is a shot of all the blocks so far. I just finished sewing down the middle circle on that Sunflower block today while waiting to get Aidan. It took me 2-3 minutes and yet it has been sitting in that hand work bag since Christmas! Why do I wait so long to finish up something that turns out to be simple and quick to do?

These have been so fun to make and I am glad I joined this sew along. I really wish I had done the civil war blocks last year but I did save them off so they might get made into a quilt some day. Until then, I am really enjoying this one.
