Early American Life Block 4

Just a short post today to share block 4 with you for the "Early American Life" quilt Cathy and I are each working on.  This is the Oak Leaf block.  I am anxious to see Cathy's version.  Click here to take a peek.


I have not been able to do much sewing.  A lot of company.  I wish you a very good New Year.  It will fast be upon us.  I have been writing the year as 1917 the last couple weeks instead of 2017.  I hope I do better at writing 2018.

  2. Lovely block! I love the striped fabric look in it.
    Have a wonderful New Year's. For some reason I started writing in 2018 early ...not sure why, just getting ahead of myself I guess? Thank you for all the inspiration throughout the year.

  6. I love that the oak leaf. I would have feared trying a striped fabric but it looks great! May you have a blessed New Year too!

  7. Neat block--and I often 'goof' in writing the year too--I mean who can really believe that we are getting ready to enter in the year
    18 in 2000--so many thought the world would end at the end of 1999!!
    enjoy the moments, di

  10. Life does get crazy during the holidays! So funny to be writing 1917 but that's how it goes when we lose our short term memory in the busyness of taking care of others!

  23. How I love this block and especially the fabrics you chose. The stripe looks subtle at first glance but then looking at the close-up, one can see all the beautiful details of the fabric. Are the white shapes in the center appliqued on the striped fabric, or is the striped fabric cut away to show the white behind? Either way, it seems like it would be a challenge to do it as perfectly as you've done.
