Album Quilt Update

Three more Country Album blocks to share with you.  I am so enjoying stitching on these.




The blocks are all pattern designs from Jeana Kimball's book "Forget-Me-Nots".  This time, I think the basket of flowers is my favorite though I thought the colors were all a bit strong while I was working on the block.

I am stitching on the 1856 Album blocks and will soon have pictures to share of those.  I have the Caswell quilt pattern and fabric selected.  I am anxious to start on the blocks but want to get more done on the Country Album quilt first.

Absolutely perfect!!! Love the colors. I think this is the book that is so far gone it is no where to purchase. What size are the blocks?
Great work and you will in enjoy the Caswell Quilt. That is on my 2017 bucket list!

Love these 3 blocks... and the colors too! I think most of the "soft" antique quilts we admire today were a bit brighter in their earlier days.
I just decorated for Spring here... and have your lovely bunny mini quilt you made displayed in my living room... beautiful stitches! Thank you again!
