Quilt Block updates



These are the last 4 blocks I completed for the CW BOM.

July has proven to be a very hectic month for me. Although I've managed to work on some hand piecing & applique' I haven't had much time for blogging or machine sewing.


Here are the first 4 Reverse Applique' blocks I've made for a Dutch Treat quilt.
Most of the blocks in this quilt will be made from the "waterlilies" multi-colored batik, but I thought I'd toss in a few purple & green blocks for a little pop & sparkle.

every quilt tells a story...

  7. Beautiful batik fabric in your new quilt, The Dutch Treat, how big are the blocks, is it a BOM? Very interesting. Your CW blocks are very pretty and I like to follow your DJ progress, it is really growing.

    Happy stitching.

  8. Reproduction prints and batiks, love it! My favorites too. Your CW blocks are beautiful and love the Dutch Treat in batiks. They do pop and sparkle!

  9. Both sets of blocks look great. Quite a different look between the two kinds of blocks. Keeps sewing interesting to vary things a bit.
