baltimore block 3

Block 3 is done and dusted. The top of the vase sits a lot better in real life so I don't think I will unstitch and redo. Other than that I am quite happy with it.
 Another sweet william block done too....Only five of this batch to go!
Then I will need to decide if I want to go as big as the pattern as that will mean another 19 blocks to be made. A smaller version would definitely be more practical but I will wait and see....
All part of the fun.
Happy days...

Gorgeous Marina, it is looking very beautiful.
Once it is quilted it will look different again. The fabric that you chose for the vase looks perfect.
