At this point you will notice that my blocks go out of sequence.... this is because I moved house and was unable to make the blocks as they were published. I then caught up as I could and I decided the most efficient way to do this was to make blocks of a similar style together, that is, all the applique, all the pieced blocks, etc.... I started with the applique blocks....
