Noah and Matilda January Update

I am back working on the Noah and Matilda blocks that Dawn (Collector With A Needle) and her daughter have drawn from an antique quilt.  Here are the latest four blocks that I completed.





I am using mainly Kansas Troubles fabrics that I have a crate full of with a little bit of Jan Patek's fabric designs.  I am using a fusible/machine stitched technique for the quilt blocks.  Here are all that  I have completed.  Gives me lots of enthusiasm seeing them on the design wall.


I read on Facebook that she has some exciting news.  She is going to be traveling to the Netherlands to do a trunk show.  You can read about it here.

  9. They look so good all together in that last photo. As I looked at enlargements of the individual blocks I thought I recognized a bunch of KT fabrics, since I have been digging through mine lately.
    A trunk show in the Netherlands? Wow!

    They look wonderful in Kansas Troubles.

  16. Absolutely beautiful applique!!! I think that stitching on a few of different quilts at a time helps to keep them all interesting.... and perhaps the "secret" to more finishes! :-)
