Old Voices New Impressions Blocks

The first four blocks of Old Voices New Impressions from the book by Jeana Kimball.  I am using the same background fabric for all the blocks and making twenty-five.

Trumpet Creeper


Heartsease

Antique Rose

Tree Top Feast

There are some other ladies joining in.  We are aiming for at least four blocks a month but whatever is accomplished is just fine.  The book is out of print and all reasonably priced used copies have been sold.  I keep an eye out for new listings of the book and will let you know if I see a copy of the book at reasonable price.  We will be showing our latest blocks the end of each month.

I have enlarged the block designs and am making the version of the quilt shown on the back cover which is using the applique blocks only.  My favorite block in this batch is the one with the bird.

Happy Stitching!
Karen
