UFOs and blockheads

Yeah, I finally got some concentrated sewing time in.  I have spent several days with the grandboys. Darlings that they are, they contain so much more energy. I just don't have as much as I used to. 
We had lots of books and games and playing outdoors. 

Here are my replacement blocks as I have decided I am not as keen on the applique. These are 6 inch blocks, so I am getting lots of practice in precise small pieces.  I did use 1 inch triangle paper for the.   2nd one which is dark purple by the way. 


Here is the group together  including the few applique I did. One more to make for this week.

Here is the progress on my Hearts. I have the center 16 together with alternating white blocks and setting triangles. Now for a large white border followed by more hearts around that. I have been contemplating this layout, second guessing my original idea.  I need to mae 8 additional blocks. And fortunately, I saved the bag of original strips, just in case.
