Thank you all for your sweet comments. I've been following for quite awhile, but haven't participated much because of the computer things, so its nice to finally become part of the group instead of just an onlooker.  

Robin, I tried the spray starch method this time and although there was a lot more prep work than the needle turn that I usually do, the applique went so much quicker and the scallops came out very nice. It's a toss up which one is better, but with all the little v's in the scallop I think it was a good choice for this project.

Bigburt, love your cottages.  Too cute.  Where did you get your pattern?  You did a great job on them so the Country Cottages should be easy for you.

Looking forward to seeing you Country Cottages Block 1.

Great job. Great colors. Was it a kit or did you select the fabrics? Especially like the school bus.  So much work- was it needleturn or fused? Either way something to be proud of.

Very nice Bigburt, the CC should be a snap for you. And why should you finish one before starting another? lol

This is absolutely darling! Beautiful work. And yes! Why not have 2 or 3 or 12 projects going at one time, lol. That way you never get bored with them because you can switch them up. Love the Hawaiian quilt. My husband is from Hawaii and I lived there for 10 years. I did a Hawaiian quilt also. My daughter has it.
