I opted not to do the CQJP this year, but applique. However, I haven't started applique yet, either! I did get center #9 started on Wednesday on the way to the Nashville temple.
On Friday, I made block 8 finally, after having it on my list for more than a month! This is one of three larger blocks in the whole thing. It's a little wacky, but stitching will help ... or not. It's okay either way.
