Ann's project progress

The next 2 Civil War Blocks
Block 36 is called Kentucky Crossroads. Kentucky was a neutral state during the war, but the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers meet in Western Kentucky and one of the early wars was fought there.
Block 37 is called "Confederate Rose"
The real flower is a Hibiscus which puts out different colors from a single plant.

The blocks for Ruffled Roses this month are the corner blocks around the baskets. This is all machine appliqued, and 2 of the stems are missing their buds until the corners are joined with the other adjacent blocks. This is the first of 4 blocks.

And the sixth set of swag borders. (3 swags)
This month's project is taking much longer than the past few, as the swags and baskets work up pretty fast.

I have seen thos hibiscous flowers, thety are really neat! They're actually the Hawai'i state flower. They are yellow in the morning, and turn red by the end of the day and fall off the tree.
