A few more Celebrating Mary Brown blocks are finished this month.

This block had some small corner appliques that were a good opportunity to try some broderie perse.

The center is cutaway applique. These blocks are very relaxing to me, I could do a whole quilt of just this.

I got a little carried away with fussy cutting in this block.

Probably less is more, but I did't really realize I had put in so much until the block was finished.

This little leaf quilt is for a charity auction this fall for my local quilt guild. I had 60 donation leaf blocks and a couple yards of leftover background fabric to assemble into a quilt top.

There is enough fabric for a 2 1/2 inch border but I am not sure if it needs it. It measures 72 x 81 like this so that is a nice size already.

Happy Summer all,
