I finished up another set of 4 of these flower blocks. I might be watching too much TV but at least I get a little something done.
Because I bought these blocks from the Virginia Quilt Museum I refer to the person who made these as "Virginia". I love studying every block to see how Virginia cut them out. Just look at the tips of each petal in this flower and you can see that the gingham check is centered perfectly on each petal. Virginia and I could have been related!
Here are the 36 completed blocks. I have 18 more to do. The current plan is plain half blocks for the border so the finished size will be about 70 x 90. Unless I decide to do something on borders and let's hope that I don't do that.

They’re beautiful. I can’t wait to see how you put them together.

Cute, cute fish and beautiful flowers! What fun. Virginia did a great job on matching up all those petal points.Your blanket stitches are every bit as perfect! --and besides, you can do fish, too! lol

I really love those flowers. Sounds like you could have the blocks done before next football seasons so will you have to look for another handwork project?

I'm sure 'Virginia' would be more than happy with you completing her quilt. Don't you wish you knew who she was and the story behind them.
