QUILT INFO

The quilt block shown is made from a pattern called "Garden of Hollyhocks" and is found in Norma Whaley's book "Sweet and Simple".

Country Album Update

Three new blocks completed for the country album I am working on.


This block design is in a Laurene Sinema quilt book called "Primitive Folk Art Designs".  I think this must be a fire engine for a train but am not sure.


The cherries and lyre block is a Jeana Kimball design from her "Nature's Chorus" book.


The third block is from Laurene's "Primitive Folk Art Designs" book.

And I have all of the blocks up on the design wall in no particular order.  I will soon be having a design floor instead of a wall as I am about out of space.


I am enjoying stitching these blocks very much.

  1. An art instructor once told me that if the creator was bored with the process, the viewers would be bored, too. I think it's very clear that you are enjoying creating these beautiful applique blocks, Karen. They are really quite wonderful and I'm looking forward to seeing the next blocks and, eventually, how you set them and finish the quilt.

  3. Those are gorgeous and that is going to be a gorgeous quilt.
    I really want to do some nice ones for me, but for now will do what I can and I do want to get the baby quilt done and a beach quilt made from old jeans.

  4. I love these blocks you have chosen Karen and I particularly like the predominant colors of red, green, and yellow. They vary from block to block but blend so well. It is going to be a happy quilt.
