The Milkmaid's Album Quilt

I am working on a four block album style quilt using a pattern called "The Milkmaid's Abum Quilt".  It is an out of print pattern by Betty Alderman.  I have enlarged the block designs by 140% for ease of applique.  Here is block number one.


I just finished prepping block number two.  I like the folk art look of the designs.
