Good day, my Friends! I have been able to add a few more pieces to my CWB quilt block on and off. My second to the latest progress picture is show below:

I was greatly distressed by the asymmetry. You know, we engineers are crazy about symmetry. I thought long and hard about whether to redo one of the stems because of the fact that it takes me probably 30-45 minutes to get a piece appliqued from start to finish. In the end, I did what I was compelled to do. I re-did the stem on the left:
I feel, as a result, a better person for re-doing the applique! Oh, my idiosyncrasies and I! At this rate, I would probably never finish my Civil War Bride quilt…
