"Mrs. Lincoln's Sampler Quilt"

More blocks done for the "Mrs. Lincoln's Sampler Quilt".

The block on the right side is the one that had a red fabric run when I rinsed the block.  I figured the block was a lost cause but I threw it in the washing machine with a color catcher and a load of towels.  The migrating red marks came out and the block is saved.  None of the blocks have been trimmed yet.  My favorite of these three blocks is the one in the middle with the three cherries.

Thanks for paying me a visit.

  12. Lovely, lovely, lovely!! I think my favorite is the red flowers!!

    What do you get color catchers? I had a little "color" problem when I soaked my antique blocks - but I'm not going to worry about it now, but in the future I'll be better!
