"Gratitude" step 2 and 3

I finished step 2 and 3 yesterday. And today I have made 6 of the scrappyblocks too. I am perhaps a bit ahead of Judy's steps, but I was so in a sewingmood LOL. And this photo will perhaps give a little prewiew of how it will look alike when it's done.
One little tip of the day. When I press I always "fix" the seams first, then I press press the seams towards the darker fabric. I feel that it helps preventing the small stripe stretching.Sunday afternoon and I am going to do some applique the rest of the evening while wathcing (hearing) tv. I am feeling much better from the flu now. I have to stay home from work tomorrow because I am getting my firewood oven installed. Perhaps I can show you a picture of it tomorrow. I am so looking forward to be able to heat my house with more than electricity.

Your quilt is off to a good start. The Thimbleberrie's fabrics look adorable all patched together. I have never heard the expression "WISP" before. That is a good one!

Very colorful block! I want to get started on mine this week - red/white/blue, of course! With gold around the outside, I think. Your block makes me think it will work out pretty well.
