I have finished another block from the Primitive Gatherings SBOW 2018 and may have just another 3 or 4 left before I start on the center and borders, which will be very long projects. These are my hand sewing projects for the car on the trips between California and Central Oregon.

Another Twilight Garden block
I have never professed to be a particularly talented appliquér so it doesn't bother me too much when my blocks aren't perfect. I am loving this project and think that none of my inaccuracies will matter when it's done. It's definitely not machine produced! ;-)
That being said, I'm finishing up my medallion challenge quilt and decided I wanted appliqué in the corners. Motivated by the master quilters Wendy Reed and Barb Vedder, I decided to do it by hand (the center of the quilt was done by machine). I found the little flowers in the same book I found for the center. I added a little embroidery for the stems so the flowers weren't just floating!
I've decided to add one final "solid" border after the flying geese and I'm torn between these two. I sewed one flower in the upper right corner; the other 3 are waiting for the flying geese to land!
What do you think??
When all 3 of our tops are done, we'll figure out a way to post them together! They are all so different but have the same basic parameters!
It's exceedingly smoky here in the Bend area and I'm staying inside until it clears. I am hoping for rain later this week to put out the fires and clear the smoky air.
Take care, everyone.
