Shenandoah Valley, Phebe and The 1857 Album Quilt


My September block for the Shenandoah Valley Quilt .  For some reason the picture loaded upside down.


I have finally started stitching the center block of Phebe.  I've had the pattern and fabrics for a couple of years but didn't start because of this center block some of the pieces are so tiny.
This is one of my favorite patterns.  I believe it is because  of those little sheep.
I want to thank Luann from LooseThreads for sending me the fabric for her dress the center of the vase and the bird wings.  They really made a difference.


Sentimental  Stitches has been sending out patterns each month for the 1857 quilt.  Here are my blocks so far.   The blocks are to finish 10”.  Not sure how I will sew them together with those little melons so close to the seam allowance.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stitching ,
Nancy

  2. What a lovely impression your careful work and choice of fabric creates in the Shenandoah Valley block!
    That center block for Phebe is unbelievable! So much going on--it is going to be a stunner. And the fabrics sent by the very sweet LuAnn are really perfect. Love the little sheep, too. : )
    You certainly don't choose the quick and simple patterns, do you? It is all so impressive, Nancy!

  6. Wonderful, your center for Phebe! I started some years ago, but still stuck in the center, as other projects came in her way. Cannot quite figure out why, as it is one of the most beautiful quilts I know. Love your colors and fabric choices. And the other blocks you show are beautiful too, as all of your work is...

  12. The upside down SV looks great, along with Phoebe and 1857! Lu Ann is a neat Lady! She helped me on fabric for Mountmellick which I am planning on starting again soon.
    Great work! Nanette - doitrightquilter.wordpress.com
