Stonefields

More Stonefields blocks to share with you though not all are block designs by the pattern designer.  I am substituting blocks to suit myself.  Some by Kay McKenzie and Jeana Kimball.  Or from my Electric Quilt program.


I like the fussy cut bird on the block below.




The frame fit fairly well around this fussy cut basket of flowers.  The background is a French General fabric.  I was hoping to be able to use the basket somehow in the quilt.



The fussy cutsbelow are from a French General fabric.  The alphabet fabric is by Blackbird Designs.  I have used that alphabet fabric as background in a few of the blocks.


Notice the flowers.  They are from a Civil War print.




The fussy cuts pieces are from a French General fabric.


I decided to make another block utilizing the oval frame.  I showed some blocks using it in a previous post.

This block is from a Kay McKenzie pattern called "Bluebells".  I like the fussy cut reverse applique center.


The letter "K" is for my name and came from a French General fabric.





I have five blocks left to prep and stitch.  And I may replace one block that I made.  I have not shown it but it turned out a bit smaller than I need.  I could sew it with small seams when I start putting everything together.

You may have noticed that I am not using actual green fabrics for the leaves and stems.  I had navy blue in one block.  Mostly, I have been using gold fabrics that had a bit of green tone to them.  Just wanted something different.

I will post more block pictures soon as I have several more done.

The Stonefields blocks are looking really lovely. What a great idea to use the alphabet fabric. I have some of that I could use in mine. Eventually.

Lizzy, thank you for your compliment. French General prints have been so popular with quilters. I wish I had bunches of all the lines.

I have been reading your blog for a long time, but have never commented before. You have the loveliest applique I believe I have ever seen! It is not something I do, and if I do, it is the cheater kind with zig zag stitching on edges. Just wanted to tell you how beautiful yours are and I always enjoy your blog and seeing your lovely work!

Oh Karen, you are so creative. I love the fussy cut blocks and especially the french general fabrics. Your "K" is so elegant and pretty. Your use of blues keeps catching my eye; I just love it.

Love the blocks and your fabric choices, one thing I love about appliqué, is so many choices to play with in colors and prints.

I'm working on Stonefields as well. I'm not really a fan of my own. I'm using a grey background, and it's way too contemporary for me. I love yours! Love your fabrics!
