I have gotten a little behind posting about my Chester Criswell blocks so I thought I would do a little update
Block 21 Mary Trayner
Block 23 Mary Watkins
Block 23 is the last block for this year so I tried to organize a little and see what I had. I have been working on this quilt for two years now just using reds and greens from my stash of reproduction fabrics and different patterned cream background fabrics. I have begun to worry that maybe I was ending up with just a great hodgepodge of colors that might not all go together so well.
It’s not too easy to tell by looking at these pictures but I think I can make it work if I mix things up a bit and spread the colors around.
Some of the blocks in this quilt were repeated and I might just take the duplicates out so it would not be quite so large because 37 blocks plus this large center block which is the size of 4 of the smaller 12 inch blocks tends to make a very big quilt.
