Hello again from South Texas and this time a more positive post! YEA!
I have been working on Alexander Bean Pot quilt by Carol Hopkins in her book Civil War Legacies. I have done an additional 4 blocks, with 20 more remaining. They are 5” unfinished and when I finish the 20 I will have 4 blocks of each color with a total of 64 blocks. I finished 2 of the red and beige and 2 of the black and white.
In getting back to my applique work, I finished one block for Jacobean Holiday. I have 2 other small blocks to finish and then 3 large blocks and then it will be time to put the blocks together! This one has been in the making probably 9 years due to the lack of interest. I found the other finished blocks in my UFO bin.
I have started on Mary Brown after purchasing tons of new reproduction fabrics. They will all be used in this quilt. I have the 16 corner blocks prepared and will be working toward getting 8 blocks completed by the end of the month! It is really feeling good to be back on schedule for November.
Here is Mary Brown – Block 1 of the top left quadrant section!
This was my original bird but I just was not happy after seeing purple instead of black in the fabric (new eyes help)! LOL
Goal for this week is to finish up with Alexander blocks and work on Sweet Stitches, Mary Brown, and Jacobean Holiday. There are so many other quilts that I would love to start working on, but I really want to finish up my UFO’s and catch up on Mary Brown!
Have a great week!
