Album Quilt Update

Three more Country Album blocks to share with you.  I am so enjoying stitching on these.




The blocks are all pattern designs from Jeana Kimball's book "Forget-Me-Nots".  This time, I think the basket of flowers is my favorite though I thought the colors were all a bit strong while I was working on the block.

I am stitching on the 1856 Album blocks and will soon have pictures to share of those.  I have the Caswell quilt pattern and fabric selected.  I am anxious to start on the blocks but want to get more done on the Country Album quilt first.

  17. Love these 3 blocks... and the colors too! I think most of the "soft" antique quilts we admire today were a bit brighter in their earlier days.
    I just decorated for Spring here... and have your lovely bunny mini quilt you made displayed in my living room... beautiful stitches! Thank you again!
