I began this Mary Mannakee block to add to my Baltimore group. I reduced it for 14" but it is still a very tight fit next to the edges. My intention was just to trace the pieces to freezer paper then I could easily grab to cut out and baste on the go. But no, I just couldn't stop! I ended up tracing and cutting out the entire thing, then basting 1/2 of the block as you see here. Then I couldn't help but applique a few pieces, then a few more... I ended up staying up until 2am each night this weekend working on it! The first night I have a good explanation due to waiting for DDs arrival from abroad. The second night the same for her arrival at the next destination. But last night, really, I was just having too much fun!!
