Shenandoah Valley Botanical Album Quilt and Sarah Fielke BOM

E-4 Boquet Block

This months block for the Botanical Album quilt is a Bouquet block.  I thought I would post on time  this month rather than late    This quilt is still on the top of my favorites list.
There will be lots of other versions of this block shown here on the 15th of the month.

I also have an update on my Sarah Fielke BOM

This is my  pink version.  A little too pink I think.
So I added a little aqua to the background.

My black version which I have tried to lighten by adding some grey.

So far that’s it for the month as most of my time has been taken up child sitting and dealing with back disk problems.
Until the next time,
Happy stitching everyone.

Jane’s Quilt

A couple of years back I won a copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks vol 10 magazine from Teresa at Fabric Therapy.

Just recently Jane, one of the members of our small quilting group retired and moved to Florida so the rest of us decide to make her a  quilt.  Each of us made a block.  I chose to make mine an applique block.  
I made “Tangled Hearts” Teresa’s block from the magazine.

I did alter the block a bit leaving off the hearts in the corners.
This is the final quilt.  I love the way it turned out and especially the way Judy quilted it.

This is our little group.  We sure miss Jane!

Most of our group is meeting for a retreat at Jane’s next week.  Sadly I am not able to go.  I know they are going to have a wonderful time and I am going to miss being there.

Until the next time,
Happy stitching,
