Monday’s Design Wall Report

Another block for my Gardenhurst quilt (pattern by Irena Blahnik in her “Focus on Quilts” book).

The design wall, which shows that I am less than half done with these blocks.  This makes five out of 13:

And a closeup of block 5, glue basted and ready to hand stitch.  (The little “tags” at the ends of the points get turned under when I do the applique’ing.)  This quilt is all flowers/urns and birds on a branch, so it’s fun to work on.  I’ve collected a few border stripes for the various urns.  All fabrics were found at Reproduction Fabrics in Northfield, MN.  She also does a great deal of mail order business, and has a great selection of Civil War fabrics, as well as other eras.

I love this block!  See my previous post for information on the applique technique I’m using or about the handy-dandy design wall sheet I’m using.
