A Finish and a Beginning

The finish is "Early American Life".  Karen and I have finished our blocks for this quilt.  I have been putting the quilt together as we worked along.  Here are the final blocks and my finished top.


 Here is block 12.  Once I finished this block I added it to row 3.




 I'm really happy with my choice of fabrics for the sashing and corner stones.



Block 13


Block 14


 Block 15


 Block 16


 And here is my finished quilt top.  I bought this fabric online and was thrilled with how well it went with all the blocks.

It has been such a joy working with Karen on this quilt.  She kept me on point.  Each month it was a surprise to see how her blocks turned out.  This has been the third quilt I have made working with Karen.  I enjoyed it so much that we have chosen our next quilt to work on.

Our next project is "Dearest Boy".



This quilt is going to take a bit longer to make.  Besides the triangle top and bottom border it has 32 10" blocks and the center block is 20".

We will be another partner in crime.  Julie K will be joining in on the fun.  As in the past we will be posting blocks on the 15th and 30th of each month.  I hope you stop by to see our progress.

In case you are wondering.  The quilt behind the book is the Gwennie Medallion Round Robin quilt I made with Lori at Humble quilts.  I just got a new quilt frame (an Ulmer frame) and I'm finally starting to hand quilt it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

Your border print works well. It reminds me of an older fabric I used to have. I have enjoyed working together with you on the quilt and look forward to many more sew-alongs with you. And now Julie!

Do you have a link to the Umley Frame? I did a search but can't find anything.

Your quilt has come together very well. The colors are so pleasing. The new quilt will be quite a challenge. I look forward to seeing everyone's progress. I love the Tree of Life blocks.

The shade of blue you chose for the sashing is fabulous. Great choice! The new pattern is going to be fun.

Great finish on your quilt top, Cathy. It is beautiful!
Yes, Dearest Boy does look more involved. Looking forward to seeing the various interpretations from the three of you.
