Country Album Quilt Update

Four blocks completed to add to the country style album quilt I am creating.

Birds and Crowns
from Jeana Kimball's "Forget-Me-Not"book

Birds With Flowers In Vase
a Laurene Sinema pattern (from an 1850 Maryland quilt)

from Laurene Sinema's Primitive Folk Art Quilt book

Crossed Pineapples
Jeana Kimball design from "Forget-Me-Not" book

I am getting close to the end of making the 30 central blocks.  I need to make decisions as to whether I want to make the ones I have selected or switch out a block design or two.

Thank you for paying a visit.  I love comments and reply to all.  If you never hear back from me, you are a no-reply commentor and I have no e-mail address for you.

Such lovely blocks!! I really like those bluebirds--I don't think we'll see any of those around here--it's still VERY cold, we have ice-coated trees and shrubs and it's very windy...ugh...hugs, Julierose

Beautiful blocks Karen! I especially like the two with birds. Ever since we did the Old Voices New Impressions sew along I have come to love bird blocks.

I really like those Jeana Kimball blocks! I had a quick look for the book, but didn't find it. Maybe I need to look harder! Not that I need another book...
