I was cruising blogs the other day and saw this darling block on Mereth's blog. I hope she doesn't mind that I am "borrowing" it. I don't know the name of it. I had been looking for a block to use with some of these cool 19th Century repros I have been collecting. (Doesn't it sound better to say that we "collect" fabric?) The block easily graphed up at 10 inches. What I like about this block is that you can incorporate several fabrics into it. The corners are large enough to use a medium scale fabric and really show it off. In the single block picture, all the fabrics, except the tan, are from the Harriet Beecher Stowe collection by Windham. They are perfect in this block! At least to my way of thinking. The other blocks contain reproduction fabrics from other favorite designers. You probably recognize some of them. I really enjoy digging through fabric from many sources to see what works in a block. Making scrap quilts in this manner always takes longer, but each block comes forth as a pretty little prize in the end. Someday I will have to work harder at being more spontanious. I think we all evolve in quilting as we go along. We gain confidence and take chances and develope our own style. I am still working on that. In the meantime, I get excited about each new project that I start and try to go like crazy on it before something else catches my eye and I get distracted. Follow through to completion! I have UFOs that are calling to me, but this new project grabbed my attention! More later.....
