Mary Mannakee Started

I've cut, turned, placed and basted my first 3 blocks for the Mary Mannakee Quilt. I'm really mixing the reds and greens. I plan on appliquing the blocks on a upcoming trip.

Block 1-A

Gorgeous! All that prep work will soon pay off!

I can tell these are going to be gorgeous even though it is just basted down thus far. I took applique basket blocks on our trip and only did two even though it was a simple block to do. Just too busy with other things.

The blocks are wonderful Janet. When you preturn all the pieces under, do you use freezer paper underneath?
