Dearest Boy

The 30th has rolled around quick but I am prepared to show the latest block for the "Dearest Boy" quilt.  Though the block does not look hard, it was a bit deceiving.  I did not want to sew partial seams to get the stems sewn in place.  Instead, I did applique on the points closest to the star.  I should have adjusted the placement of my stems as the lower part will get chopped off flat instead of in a point where the two stems meet.  What I mean by chopped off is that the stem bottoms will be part of a seam and flat in that area instead of nicely meeting above the seam allowance.  I am not changing it.


Doreen has joined in on making the quilt blocks so that makes five of us now.  She got a late start and is doing her own schedule of blocks.  You can visit her here.  You can visit Cathy here.  Julie here.  And Carole here

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Rose Block for Dearest Boy

A quick post for today.  I am sharing the Rose block that is next in line for the Dearest Boy" album quilt.  There is a story that goes with the rose block.  It is to represent "Sister Rose".  I won't spoil the story for you.  You will have to read it in the pattern set.


Carole, Cathy, and Julie should have their blocks posted also.  Click on their name to ride the magic carpet to their blog.
