Country Album Update

Two more blocks done for the Country Album quilt I am working on.  This makes a total of 8 blocks.


Twirling Sunflowers


Birds With Vase

Both blocks were designed by Jeana Kimball and found in her book "Forget-Me Nots".

We have company so I will have limited stitching time for a couple weeks.  I am working on another block for the quilt and hope to have it done in a few days.

I can tell by the pieces those were two challenging blocks, especially those little swirls around the sunflowers. Great job.

That twirling part of the sunflowers looks very challenging! I love your ombre fabric on the birds--looks great!

Anothe two great block! November those sunflowers and their interesting leaves.

Enjoy your company and stitching time.

Oh, my, those twirling sunflowers look really labor intensive. Their look makes me think of firework pinwheels--I don't know why that came to mind. : )
And I really like the effect of the fabric you chose for the birds.
