Civil War Bride - block 18

I haven't completed many projects, mainly due to work commitments and hand-applique is not something you can rush.
But I have completed my 18th block for the Civil War quilt.  Two more blocks and the border to go.  Would love to finish it by the end of the year... We'll see.
These are the blocks I have completed so far.  I am happy how they have turned out and when they get assembled it will make a beautiful heirloom quilt.

 For a bit of fun I cut out this wall hanging which need to be blanket stitched..

 I just love the beautiful roses blooming in the garden at the moment.  This one almost doesn't look real!

These flowers, commonly known as Pigface, are just about everywhere in people's garden including mine.
