On a Roll - more SBS blocks

I spent much of the day at my sewing machine and got the last couple of blocks prepped and 6 more SBS blocks made. 139 done, 5 to go!

I-4 Anvil, Marti Michell templates, machine pieced
I-7 Right Hand of Friendship, more Marti Michell templates, machine pieced

J-3 Farmer's Daughter - EQ6 templates, machine pieced

J-4 Autumn Leaf - EQ6 templates, machine pieced, except for stem, hand appliqued

N-6 kaleidoscope , used MM templates for cutting fabric that was then paper pieced together

Christmas Star - the last extra block I am making. Taken from More Elm Creek Quilts, the Christmas Quilt. Used Marti Michell templates when available, then EQ for the rest, machine pieced. The 12" version will be all MM templates. The Christmas Quilt might well be the next Jennifer Chiaverini quilt I make. Those 12" blocks will seem huge!
Next, however, is hand piecing Tumbling blocks or finish up Glorified Nine Patch, then it will be the last three easy pieced blocks (which are all cut out) and all of the blocks will be done! Don't know if that will happen this week or not. I also need to make a baby quilt really soon. And I will be heading off to Sisters Oregon for the quilt show this week. Fun times with my sister :)
