Another Welcome Home Block Complete!

I'm thrilled to say that my applique skills are improving with each block.  Although if I look at this block quickly I could possibly see a big banana instead of a moon, I still think this block is cute.  Here's another Welcome Home block that is complete (well, at least the applique part is complete.)

With election day and Veteran's Day this week, it was only fitting I complete the block with the American flag... festive!  I love these primitive blocks. :)

 I've been working from Cheryl Wall's book Welcome Home.  I really like the quilt designs in the book.  The instructions are illustrated nicely.  They are easy to follow.  The only thing I don't like about the book is that the instructions are cut, sew, cut, sew...  I sat one day and just wrote out all the cutting instructions on pages and pages of notebook paper to help streamline the process when it comes to stitching the blocks.  Other than that, I LOVE the book!
 
 
I'm linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts.  It's another gorgeous day outside here in Ohio.  The Cleveland Indians didn't win the World Series, BUT second place isn't that bad.  Have a great week, everybody!
