I finished the third block from the Benjamin Biggs block of the month. The quilt is a reproduction block of the month pattern from "Just Takes Two" (Gay Bomers and Brenda Papadakis). They provide a block pattern each month for free and then the blocks are available for purchase on their website. The program started last January (2014) so block #13 is currently available. You can also find them on Facebook - search for Just Takes 2. I promised myself that I would make at least one grand red and green applique quilt and fell in love with this one when I saw it so I'll keep plugging away. Let's see...3 blocks per year...25 blocks...I'll be finished with the blocks in about 8-1/2 years. And then there are the borders. And the quilting. Oh well...

I don't have much to say today but was inspired by Lucy's simple post of a pile of her quilts. As she says, "never get tired of them."
I did finish an applique block last night and will post a photo after I give it a wash and press it so it looks all pretty.
