Slow Stitching Sunday

I am sharing applique blocks on Slow Stitching Sunday.  I have started working on Stonefields blocks.  I am using reproduction fabrics so my blocks will not be as light and pastel as many quilters have done.

First up are four pieced star blocks.


Some block patterns are for a single use.  Others are in two's.



This is one of the single use designs.


I am enjoying playing with the repro fabrics for this project.

I want to share a picture of a small quilt that was gifted to me by a quilting friend in Spain.  I love the red and white fabrics.


I am linking to Kathy's "Slow Stitching Sunday" links.  Pay her blog a visit to see what others are working on.  Click here.

Not slow to me, you get a lot done with all the different projects, I am lucky if I sew an hour a day lately. One more week;)

As you might have heard me say, I love the Stonefield quilt. Your start is wonderful and I will enjoy seeing it in this darker color way. Did you hand piece the star blocks! Your little red and white gift quilt is lovely.

Quilter Kathy said...

I wasn't familiar with Stonefield so I had to look that up... what a complex quilt that is! So many different blocks to make! Great job on these!

Barbara said...

So many interesting blocks. I think Stonefields will keep you busy for a while :) Looking forward to seeing your progress.

I like your blocks! I'm a fan of reproduction fabrics myself.

Kyle said...

OH, my gosh, you are off and running on a beautiful interpretation of Stonefield. Love the historical figures in the center of the stars. Your red and white mini is a classic. I tend to forget how lovely a simple pattern, simply done can be.

CathieJ said...

What a pretty variety of blocks and fabrics.

julieQ said...

I love to see your applique, as it always inspires me! What fun sawtooth stars!

LONA said...

Oh my gosh, another Stonefields quilter! Isn't this quilt grand?!! I sold a kidney to buy the pattern :) and have my fabrics purchased. I am just trying to move forward with a different quilt before I begin. Looking forward to your progress and seeing more of your blocks! Happy Stitching! Lona

Lovely blocks..(another basket maybe?) hugs, Julierose

Nancy said...

Your blocks are wonderful, as always, Karen. I especially like the last little basket with those flowers that make me think of lollipops. Well, maybe love is a better word. Lucky you to receive that little red and white quilt.

Cute! Some of those blocks look like the Sarah Johnson quilt. Everything old is new again.
