Ohio Sampler and Other Projects


It’s Friday and Karen, Lori, LuAnn and Cathy are posting their  Ohio Sampler updates.  Since I have already assembled my quilt I thought I would post an update on some of the other quilts I have been working on.


First Benjamin Biggs.  
I will say I have done a complete turn around on my attitude about this quilt.
At first the dark reds I had chosen to uses didn’t appeal to me but after putting the first half of the quilt together I find I really like the way it is looking.



Next Chester Chriswell.  
I chose to make both versions of this months blocks because even if they are the same block they look so different when you add the green.


It’s hard to believe that after three years of working on this quilt we only have one block left to stitch.


There were a few more photos I would like to have uploaded for this post but it seems the new Apple  Photo App is not cooperating .  I hate this new update.  It is so confusing and difficult to use.  In my opinion change is not always a good thing.
Until next time,
Nancy

  2. I love your blocks! I couldn't agree more about change...I think there is a room full of techies somewhere laughing every time they make a change,. It's like they want to see how many people they can confuse! Grrr.

  4. Your appliqué is beautiful! I haven't seen anyone that likes the iPhoto replacement. I hate it, too ... it has less functionality and isn't at all intuitive. grumble!

  5. Oh, Benjamin Biggs is a feast for the eyes! Still in my future to make these blocks. And a joy to see your Ohio Sampler quilt top again.

  7. Your Ohio Sampler is a delight, and I love your Benjamin Biggs blocks! It looks so worth the time it has taken to assemble all the blocks. Only one more and then you need to celebrate! : )

  10. Great eye candy. Thanks for posting. I've been so frustrated with the new iPhoto too. I export photos before posting to my blog and I can no longer name them the way I want to. It's added another step to the process. I'm guessing you are right about techies.

  11. Your Benjamin Biggs blocks are so much prettier than the original I saw when you began! Your fabric choices are just wonderful and of course your Ohio quilt is fabulous!! It's quite interesting the difference that green makes on the block - you have to look twice to see it's really the same!! Keep Stitching and inspiring me!!

  14. Technology can be so troublesome at times can't it - especially when there are "helpful" updates downloaded. Hmmm keep calm and carry on?
    All your projects look wonderful - and nearly finished the CC - will be so exciting to get it all togethere!

  16. Love the two blocks to compare the all red or red with green "leaves"? I really like the one with the green added. Three years of continuous stitching!! This is going to be wonderful when all together. Good Luck

  17. Love your progress and agree the greeen really changes that block. I guess we have become so reliable on our technology that when it is isn't quite working right it is frustrating. Your sampler looks wonderful. I am not a big fan of sampler quilts but I do love the ones that don't have sashing!
