I made the "in-between" blocks after I did the embroidery. I really do love this quilt, but I have to admit that the nine-patch blocks were tedious. You might not be able to tell, but there is a little pink block in the nine patches and the four patches. I threw in the picture with the ribbon I mentioned back in July. I've been looking at it still.
As I was putting the squares together, I realized I had been a bit hasty and not read the directions all through and I had done one of the embroidered pieces wrong. I think only I would have known, but I would have known. I re-did the piece. I am happy about it now.
