I saw this little quilt first on Quilt Hollow's blog; and when my magazine arrived, I just could not resist it. It will end up as a pillow or a wallhanging in the guest bedroom. It can be found in the August 2011 issue of APQ magazine and was designed by Annemarie S. Yohnk. Now I just need to find the perfect medium value tan for the first inner border and then I will try to mimic the quilting design.
I have made lots of progress on Autumn Houses.
Even though the shapes are made, there are many little applique stitches that still need to be sewn.
Block 1, 3 and 6 are totally completed and 4, 5 & 7 are half done.
I was thrilled to see that Nives, from Northern Italy, and Kathie, from Sydney, Australia, have posted their recent 1880 sampler blocks on the flicker site. Nives' blocks are closer to the same colors as mine, but Kathie has chosen a brown and pink theme that is very warm and inviting. I hope to have collages of their blocks to share, but if you can't wait to see them, check them out here.
Today's goal is to get my exchange blocks made for my SSQSG meeting in July. They need to be 4" finished blocks and I need 6 of them. We exchange blocks every other month. I missed the June meeting, but you can read all about it on Merumo's blog and see her collection of blocks so far.
