Dutch Treat update

These are the last four 5" applique' blocks I've completed for my Dutch Treat quilt.
The quilt contains 196 blocks - leaving me 181 to complete.
Additionally, there will be an outside applique' border.

Here's what I've completed to date:

My sister and several of my quilting friends have decided to start their own Dutch Treat journeys. It will be fun to follow up with them and hopefully, share photo's of their work in the future.

every quilt tells a story...
