Barbara, I cheated on the label.  I did it on the computer!!!  Put it on my light box and traced it!!  Was going to embroidery, but didn't feel I could do the letters as well as I wanted.

Thanks everyone, it was a wonderful journey.  Most of the fabric came from my stash.  We could sign up to receive a packet of fabric from Jeana, which was beautiful reproductions from the time period.  I actually went through my stash, and found a lot of circa 1830 fabrics.

Lovely work, Lynne! Can’t wait to see it once it’s quilted. I love your center label. BP is not my idea of a good time, either!

It is gorgeous Lynne.   Be sure to post an updated pic once it has been quilted & bound.

WOW - so lovely.  I want to get my nose up to it to look at all the colors and how the textures play together,  What a treasure, and your documentation in the center is perfect. My lettering never turns out pretty enough to be on the front.  What a wonderful journey to have taken

I joined a 10 month long project, given by Jeana Kimball.  The journey was to do the project by hand.  She included 2 blocks a month.  I added 5.  2 were machine pieced,, hand piecing does not agree with my hands.  The center block was to be Broderie Perse, I was unable to find anything I liked to fit that center, and I am not that fond of BP, so I used it as my label.  It heads to the long arm quilter tomorrow.   Size is 65 square.

This evening I will get the backing sewn and pressed.

Well done Barbara!  Sorry I haven't written...again!  Each time is a test to see if their software will let me in☹️

Very nice, Barbara! Your borders help draw the attention inwards towards your blocks. Nicely done!

Very lovely projects Barbara.  I know what you mean about our hands not working like they used to.  Very frustrating to say the least!

I also looked up the Stonefield quilt.  Looks like a lot of interesting little blocks to make.  Will be lovely.  Time has flown with all thedays seeming more or less the same.  Been working on getting my stash in better sahpe to actually find stuff, and of course working on projects, mostly pieced with minor touches of applique in borders.  Experimenting with alternatives to needle turn as my hands just do not have enough control anymore for it to look as I think it should. Pics are of the top with my last set of needle turned blocks created before my hands got as bad.  I showed earlier, but it now has all the borders I'm content with adding.  2nd pic is of a  meant to get ravelled Drunkards Path quilt that I added meant to ravel floral vine border.  Still need to trim the furrist bits away, but I'm enjoying the effect.

I looked up the Stonefield quilt, Annette. Looks quite challenging. Definitely not for the faint of heart, but looks lovely. 

Did a little appliqué this week for an unusual project. I rescued a vintage (1920s?) Trip around the World block. It was getting a little wonky by the time the quilter sewed on the final triangles to make it square and the bias edges weren’t helping. So I removed the triangles and appliquéd the hand pieced blocked to a solid background. The inside is quilted quickly, so I just need to quilt a border.
