It's Coming Along

I've completed two more blocks on row 4 and they took forrrrevvvver to do.  All those itty-bitty parts and my usual quandary... what colors should I choose.
I'm trying to use purples and reds because they go well with the yellow and also because I know that my oldest dd as well as her daughter love purple.  Either one could be the recipient of this quilt when it's done.  Ria (gdd) and her husband have just bought their first house so that's been on my mind while working away.
I'm not completely pleased with this block because of the fabric I selected with all the white flowers but it's done, all the seams match up and none of the points were cut off so I'm keeping it.  Probably won't be noticeable in the midst of all the rest of the busy blocks anyway.  But you can see that I'm fabric-selection challenged.
Both of these blocks were paper-pieced which is accurate but a little boring to do after a while.  I like to strip quilt but there's no way to do that in this quilt... so I'll save it for the next one.
it's not particularly attractive but I find I work on the blocks more often if I can see how far I've come.  Only 5 1/2 rows to go.

My dd's doggie had her pups (yes, I know she should be spayed but she got preggers before she could be) - 7 of them.  One is a runt and she isn't feeding him so it may have to be bottle-fed if it's to live.  She had them last night so we'll see if the little guy makes it through the night.  Then I'll get some pictures of the new mommy and her babies.

Take care all.  Hope you're enjoying beautiful weather like we are here. :-)
