Last of the Stonefields Blocks

I have finished all the blocks for the Stonefields quilt.  In fact, more than I need because I did not add in one small batch to my total at some point.  I will have a few extra to play with in case something does not work well.  Lots of block pictures in this post.  Again, I have substituted blocks from other designers if I did not care for a design that came with the pattern or I felt there were too many repeats of a block I did not enjoy stitching.



Again, I made use of a French General fabric panel that had letters on it (You might remember that I used the large red "K" for my initial on a block and can see it in the previous post).



Love this French General toile.





























I am not going to do the flying geese border nor the hexagon border that follows.  I am going to let my fabric do the job instead.  I have a border print that picks up the colors I have used in the blocks.  I hope it works.  Now to trim blocks and play with laying them out.

I think Stonefields blocks are the perfect blocks to highlight your amazing applique skills, Karen. Each block looks like a little gem. Delightful!

Were you effected by the hurricane? I hope you, your loved ones, and your home (and your fabric) are all safe and dry.

Oh my! I love this post! You have so many gorgeous blocks. I like your name block, too. There is something about the applique flower on the pink lettered fabric that steals my heart. I can't wait to see it all put together!

Jeanna said...

Those are all lovely blocks Karen. The girl at the sewing machine and the block that spells your name are fun and appropriate.

Your quilt will be so beautiful and have that reproduction look! I agree on changing the blocks. I had the same issues in repeating the same block. I have 4 Sections completed - maybe I can get this one done by New Years - I would love to and show it next year in the area shows! Congrats on a job well done!
