Lynne, I thought the block was larger than that - lots of small pieces! Your other blocks are beautiful!

I have osteoarthritis and problems with my rotator cuff, probably attibutable to my landscape business. In any case, I understand how you feel. Looking forward to seeing the finished top.

I sympathize about hand problems.  I have already had carpal tunnel surgery on both hands as well a trigger thumb surgery on my left hand, but now I'm developing the same problem with the middle finger on my right hand.  Very frustrating!

such pretties!  Little by little will get the job done, and you will have such a wonderful treasure.  I have hands that no longer like to do much handwork at a time, too.  Still working on finishing the hand quilting of my "Mad About Plaid" based on Jeanna Kimball's "Fairmeadow" applique blocks from quite a few years back.  10- 20 minutes at a time will get the job done eventually.  Down to a few blocks that I missed when working out from the center

PS... yes the 9 patch star was appliqued.  Done in pieces, not as a whole star.

Here is a picture of some I have finished.  The smallest block, with flying geese, I did on the machine.  Hand piecing is not my friend!!  I know I have finished other ones, not included in the picture.  I also added a few on my own.    I really like the look of the ones with frames around them.

Thank you for your comments, Janet, handstitcher and QD.  QD the block will finish at 13 inches.   I have a few more blocks to complete,,, but the bursitis and osteoarthritis, seem to control how much I can do.  I do make and effort to work on them daily.

Lynne, your block is beautiful! How large is the block?

Comment by handstitcher/IL on February 8, 2020 at 6:27am

Wow! That’s beautiful, Lynne. You absolutely should feel proud of your work! I look forward to seeing other blocks from your BOM.

What a lovely block.  I have never seen this design before.  It would make a lovely medallion in the center of a quilt.

Last year, I joined an online BOM with Jeana Kimball.  I am still working on the blocks.  In this class, we hand appliqued the blocks,,, even blocks that could be machine pieced.  {I did machine piece one}  I finished this block last night,,, and I am very proud of the way it turned out.  The outer ring has 48 pieces, and each were appliqued individually.
