Are You Tired Of These Yet?

I'm still on a roll this week...the colors on this one look really washed out. It's much more intense in real life...

This is "F-5, Parcheesi", an intermediate-level block made using the raw-edge machine buttonhole-stitch method (again). The squares and melons were all cut out as one piece, just like I explained in this post. This one was a little tougher because I had to also cut out the center, but it wasn't bad. One hour's work, tops.

No, not tired of watching your progress. I will probably never make one and it's fun to see you work on yours.

One hour? Sixty minutes?

Gosh no...not tired of it at all and hoping that I'll glean your technique. I love the raw edge applique technique, do you ever use a different stitch other than blanket stitch? Invisible thread? Yvette (BOM quilter) pointed me over here and I'm learning a lot.
