Marie Antoinette Quilt Block 2 Completed

After taking Simba to the vet yesterday for another blood test (I'll have the results later today), I actually sat still and finished up on Block #2 of my Marie Antoinette Quilt:






And this is Block #1:




This is what they look like together:

Sorry that last photo is a twinge dark.  I really try to take good photos and I usually do okay but every now and then....

I pulled the 3rd block out and have it all ready in the hoop.  I have a few little things I'd like to finish up before starting on Block 3 so I'll wait to share that photo until I'm ready to start stitching on it.

If you're new to my blog, this crazy quilt is a Winter Project.  The theme is Marie Antoinette.  There will be 9 blocks, each featuring an image of Marie.  The blocks are 9 inches square.  I plan to have it completed by March at which time, I will assemble it and hang it in my Living Room.

Hi Pam

Even Marie would have to say that these are gorgeous. I can't wait to see the rest of them and then the finished piece.

I enjoyed the tutorial on the roses. would you believe I have never done one like this. I am going to try it.

thanks

Even dark, you can see how well these compliment each other. Though the coloration is different, there's a goes-togetherness to them. Beautiful work on both. I looked at the new one as large as I could make it, and it's truly beautiful. I see your roses there.
