OK, I didn't do it. I was going to post a "punny" title, but didn't. Which does not mean I resisted posting the ones that came to mind..."Hare Ye, Hare Ye"...."Hare's Looking at You"...."Hare We Go"....OK...enough...sorry, but I did say I couldn't resist. A small look at the beginning of my version of Esther Aliu's Golden Rabbit (which she said was really a hare).

It seems like all I have been doing lately is working on "pieces" for my four Block 4 of Heart's Desire.
Lots are ready, but there are still many more to do...all the leaves and flowers. I am trying to take
Esther's suggestion and have an "assembly line" type production of all my pieces. As of today, all flowers baskets - done. Corner circles - done. Sawtooth (eight of those paper-pieced buggers) - done!

It seems like it was the beginning of May yesterday, doesn't it? Where did the past two weeks go? Well, for me, the time has been spent working on my three blocks that consisted of Part 3 for the Heart's Desire quilt by Esther Aliu. (no pictures, just yet)
On the fifteenth, Esther released the next part.....FOUR blocks for Part 4. Yikes!!
And we cannot assemble any of the parts yet. Esther tells the group that all will be revealed next month....I have my doubts as to whether I am going to be able to complete all four blocks for this part by next month. B u t.....I did make a start. Finally. I was so overwhelmed by the amount of work for each block...I think I got quilter's block....is there such a thing? You know, like a writer gets writer's block and cannot write? Well, when I saw the new block (which is beautiful, by the way), I froze. Literally, my brain could not come up with anything. It (my brain, that is) finally relaxed. I chose some fabrics from my choices for this quilt for the corner flower pots. Here are all the pieces, not assembled yet, but ready.
