Final Country Album Blocks

I have the last two of thirty blocks done for the Country Album style quilt.  I have not started the border applique process as of yet.  The two blocks below are both from Jeana Kimball's "Forget-Me-Not" book.  Love the cow udder and the cute bunnies.



I finished one more of the 1857 blocks.  I am leaving off the corner diamond shapes for right now.


Some of my blog visitors have said they would like a copy of Jeana Kimball's book "Old Voices New Impressions" which myself and a few other quilters were stitching the applique blocks from last year.  There is a copy available on E-Bay as a Buy Now.  Click here.  Just thought I would let you know.

Have a great day and take time to sew.

  14. I love both of your final blocks for the Country Album quilt! I am excited to see what you came up with for the borders.
    Your 1857 block looks terrific. I keep going back & forth on adding the corner pieces now or later.

  17. I couldn't find the cow and bunnies in the "Forget-Me-Knot" book. Is that where those patterns came from? Is there a pattern for your Country Album quilt? I love your work.

    1. Donna, you are a no-reply commenter which means I have no e-mail address for you to answer your questions. I will put the info here in case you come back to my blog.
      The cow block is on page 21 of the Forget-Me-Not book. The bunnies are on page 38. If you go to page 53 where the color pictures start of quilts people have made using blocks from the book, there is a picture of a quilt called "Country Life Album". The maker used patterns from the Forget-Me-Not book, Laurene Sinema's Primitive Folk Art Designs and her Minature Folk art pattern. The borders come from Jeana Kimball's Applique Borders book. She also used Jenni Dobson's book Sweet & Simple Country quilts on parts of the border. I had all these patterns and books. I had to enlarge block patterns except from the Primitive Folk Art Designs book. I have used a couple different block designs than the maker of this quilt. And I used the Churning Couple block from Sweet & Simple Country Quilts as a block rather than a small design included on the border. So my intention is to have a very similar quilt to what is shown but not exact. I hope this helps you.
