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!
