Noah and Matilda January Update

I am back working on the Noah and Matilda blocks that Dawn (Collector With A Needle) and her daughter have drawn from an antique quilt.  Here are the latest four blocks that I completed.





I am using mainly Kansas Troubles fabrics that I have a crate full of with a little bit of Jan Patek's fabric designs.  I am using a fusible/machine stitched technique for the quilt blocks.  Here are all that  I have completed.  Gives me lots of enthusiasm seeing them on the design wall.


I read on Facebook that she has some exciting news.  She is going to be traveling to the Netherlands to do a trunk show.  You can read about it here.

Love what you have done with these blocks. So different from the original. Your choice of fabrics is always impeccable.

They look so good all together in that last photo. As I looked at enlargements of the individual blocks I thought I recognized a bunch of KT fabrics, since I have been digging through mine lately.
A trunk show in the Netherlands? Wow!

You will have a very pretty folk art quilt when completed. Like the colorway.

Beautiful blocks Karen!
They look wonderful in Kansas Troubles.
I need to begin working on my N&M blocks again.
Your post is just the motivation I need.

Absolutely beautiful applique!!! I think that stitching on a few of different quilts at a time helps to keep them all interesting.... and perhaps the "secret" to more finishes! :-)

Beautiful blocks! I love the Kansas Trouble fabrics. I really like the flowers in the vase, it looks a little like a hat. They sure look wonderful all together!
