More Pics

Some more pictures of my heritage quilt. The quilt is made up of 40 x 12.5 inch blocks with a 36 inch centre block.

I made a similar quilt a few years ago and the ladies I sew with on Tuesday wanted me to help them make the quilt. My original quilt was made using seeded homespun with cream lace and doyleys and a number of beige to brown threads for the stitching.

For a change I decided to use a blue background with white lace etc. After making the first few blocks I thought it needed a little something to give it a lift so I chose the colours you can see in the previous post.

I've also used a number of seed beads on the lace as a highlight. We have 20 blocks near enough finished and that means we're just about halfway.

looks real neat Sue, I like it. Something quite different. It look like hand work is it.

These are wonderful blocks and very unusual for sure. I find your 4 seasons swap quilt lovely. No wonder, scraps are my favorite too. I think it will look good with either a stitchery or an appliqué. Take care.

The blocks are mostly machine applique, the beading and some lace are stitched on by hand.
