It’s been a little while since I updated on this project! I got close to up to date, but now I’m really behind again….

I got up to date with blocks 3, 4 and 5. I’m still in love with the project, I just need to get back on it!

Each of the three blocks was really 4 blocks, so the 3 blocks is really 12 blocks in total! Block three was the Piano Keys. Super easy paper piecing. I made one extra block of this one. You can see in my planning for this block I didn’t use a solid. Once I had the two prints together, I knew it was a big fat NO!

Block 4 was the scattered geese. Another paper piecing, just a little more in depth. And I made these with a solid first, then decided I didn’t like it that way. So technically the 12 blocks were actually 16 since I made a few extras….

And lastly, Block 5 was the Arrowheads. This block incorporated the applique. I’m not a big fan of applique because I’m worried about the fabric fraying after washing. But I did it anyway! And I love how they turned out!

The next ring is waiting patiently for me in it’s box…. I’ve got one of the 3 sets done… I need to finish the rest of the ring to show! What am I talking about? I want to finish the whole thing before the end of the year…. We’ll see!
