E-11 and Fourth from the top on the Right

Well February is already halfway over and I haven't done much at all! This week I did manage to get an applique block and a triangle done. My buddy who has been working on one as well has been needing some encouragement - her husband passed away shortly after Christmas and she is having a tough time right now. So we are encouraging each other to work on our blocks. I hope she can find some comfort as we work on our quilts - at least it gives me a chance to lift her up a bit and know that she has a friend.
This triangle I did by tracing on freezer paper, cutting it into the pattern pieces and ironing them on to the fabric. I cut out with a 1/4 inch seam allowance, then pieced. It went really well and looks pretty good!
E-11 is one I've been avoiding for a while, so it was a good day to tackle it! I appliqued the center wheel onto the white, then reverse appliqued the background over that. Then I appliqued the corners on in white. Glad to have this one out of the way! I think tomorrow I will finish up Row E! Yay for progress!

Thanks for sharing how you did E11, as I'm working across that row right now! Your Babies look wonderful. I'm sorry for what your friend is going through.

What a great job on both of those tricky blocks! Patchwork is such a great way to heal, especially when in the company of others!!
