Beyond the Cherry Trees - Block 11

Block 11
Not much to report this week, but I finally completed my first wreath block for the quilt. This has taken forever to make, not sure why, as it is a simple block - maybe that's it. I have introduced two new fabrics - one red and another mustard coloured batik. I felt I needed to extend the collection a little, since I originally started with mainly fat quarters and I am becoming a little worried that even with my parsimonious approach to cutting fabric I will have an insufficient range for the vine border and so I purchased these new fabrics at the Festival of Quilts.

Need to prepare a couple of more blocks - the weekend it predicted to be a very warm one, which will certainly be a change from the cool, wet summer that we have had, so maybe will spend time prepping out in the garden.

Have a good week!
