New Quilting Project - day 1

I started my new project yesterday. Worked on a sample for each block except one. I did some wool felt applique, got two blocks done and am happy with them. They are not laid out in any order. Refer to my sketch to see where they will go. My favorite is the fan, it will be on a dark green flannel which will be my center medallion for my wool applique basket of flowers.
This is my first time to mix wool with my cotton piecing, I plan to overlap some vines and flowers onto the blocks. My design will most probably change.
I ordered "Simple Comforts" by Kim Diehl, it came yesterday. Hoping to expand my design with ideas from this wonderful book. I don't like to work from patterns, but there are many techniques in applique that I can apply to my design.
I am having a gall bladder ultrsound today, my babies are moving in a week, what more do I need than a very challenging quilting project. It will help fill my time and will be easy to take with me for handwork when I visit Alex and Payten. Their Mommy is my precious middle daughter, always there for me when I need her as I am for her. I will miss her most of all.
