The Milkmaid's Album Quilt Update

I managed to get two through four of the four blocks for "The Milkmaid's Album Quilt" finished.  (Pattern is out of print and is by Betty Alderman).  The blocks will be set with simple sashing as shown on the pattern.  I cannot do that just yet as my sewing area is set up for getting patterns prepared and backgrounds marked for a Lori Smith folk art style quilt.  I know if I put the pattern making supplies away, the Lori Smith pattern will go by the wayside too easily.




And to remind you what the first block looks like.....



I am stitching on another of the "Bountiful Life" quilt blocks.  This one is all strawberries in pink and red.

These are lovely, Karen. How big are the blocks? They look like they might be quite small and fiddly!

These are so cute. I am prepping applique for another Lori Smith Elizabeth's Pride block and was just thinking about looking at her patterns to see if I want to do another of hers!

Deb said...

These blocks are so sweet and your work is lovely and inspires me to try applique again.
