Deacon Blocks 17-20

Here they are . . . 


Four more blocks in opposite corners of the quilt.


17. Reel block from Mount Holly, 1842. One fabric used throughout. I appliqued each piece by keeping the freezer paper template on top.


I was pleased with the way it turned out.


18. The easiest of the four, this block was foundation paper pieced. It's attributed to Sarapta (?) Wills, Mount Holly 1842.


19. Orange Peel signed Samuel J. Deacon 1842. This was some serious applique work, lol!

 
20. The center was appliqued after the block was pieced. The original was attributed to Ann R. Coles. 


Here's what my design wall looks like at the moment. I'm filling in the blanks :) 


On another note I've been cleaning out my sewing room which is no easy task, lol! More to come.


So many birds! Hundreds, maybe thousands, appear every February in our backyard. They certainly make a racket when they're in the trees. 

That's it for now!

Enjoy your week!

  1. All of your blocks are gorgeous! This is going to be a wonderful quilt. I've been working on cleaning my second floor, which includes the sewing room. It is a big project indeed. That is a lot of birds! I have a bird feeder for the first time this year and there are a lot of birds here too, but they are all crowded around the feeder.

  2. Oh I am so enjoying your progress on these blocks. This is the best batch yet. Your applique is stunning. I have been trying to get to sewing room re-organization since Christmas. I'd like to think you have inspired me to jump in! The birds look like grackles, but I have never seen that many on any one lawn. You must have the most interesting yard in town.

  3. Your blocks are perfect, Barbara. Wonderfully executed, beautiful fabrics. Looks like you're getting close to the halfway mark! It seems like we're all cleaning our sewing rooms lately. Its a constant struggle around here, with too much stuff crammed into too small a space. I love your painted floor!

  5. I just read Wendy's comment and chuckled because she used the exact words I was planning to say--your applique is stunning. But I'm sure it means more coming from Wendy, because she does amazing applique too.
    That is a huge amount of birds for one yard. We see that kind of crowd in the fields after they have been plowed or when they are flood irrigating, because those are prime times for worm finding. But I have never seen them like that in a yard!

  6. You worked on a lot of curved appliques this month. Your blocks are perfect. Are you working on the blocks in any particular order? All the black birds for miles around must be tweeting about your yard. I like your painted floor too.
