Homage To American Quilt Makers

More blocks completed from the Lori Smith pattern "Homage To American Quilt Makers: Album Quilt".







I have one more block to prep from the pattern.  A total of five left to do the stitching on and one of those is getting close to done.  Then decision making time about the setting and border.  I am thinking of doing something a little bit different than the pattern shows.

I also stitched a sample basket block and I like the look.  I do not know who the basket pattern designer is.  At some time I had cut out a basket from a pattern but never stitched it.  I made a new pattern from the fabric basket I had cut out and went from there with a piece of Blackbird Designs fabric from stash.


You will find me in my chair today stitching away.

I'm loving these blocks. And that basket is super, I've not seen this one before.

Janet said...

Really like the basket pattern, I think the curvy top makes it and of course your fabric. All the block look great. Hope you are feeling better.

What a beautiful quilt you're going to have!! And I love your little basket. I have a basket pinned to my design wall that I'm hoping to make. Just have to decide on fabric choices, and then start prepping for applique. Yours is much cuter, but I think I'll stick with the traditional.

Stitch away, Karen! The blocks are all so pretty, and though it's hard to pick a favorite, I have to say I just love the bluebirds! I really like your bunny pillow in the header too.

pretty pretty blocks.

You have been very busy. Those are all nice blocks.

I sure would love to be found in my chair today stitching. Instead I am at work, but that is really ok because working gives me money to buy more fabric for more projects.

Your applique' is gorgeous! I love the pattern, colors, and workmanship. You said you prep it? Does that mean you turn the edges under with an iron and then hand stitch it down? That is the way I do it.
