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.
