I mentioned some time ago that I bought some Morris Apprentice fabrics intended for a quilt for my sister. I was browsing through my pattern books and came across ‘Aunt Nancy’s Favourite’ in The Big Book of Patchwork – 50 Fabulous Quilts by Judy Hopkins. Last night I finished the blocks. It was truly satisfying working on these, each one unique. I love the fabrics, 90% of them William Morris Inspired from three or four different series, and I think they lend themselves really well to this design. If my sibling is not as pleased, I’ll keep this one.
That is going to be a wonderfully rich quilt! Beautiful fabrics.
Thanks! If nothing else it will be really ‘busy.’ I do love the fabrics.
Beautiful. I can’t wait to see the way you put them all together.
I’m going to make a quilt for my sister very so also!!!
I have a second sister I hope to make one for by September.
This is a great block! It’s so complex, though. Your skills and experience far surpass mine. Beautiful.
You didn’t look very close! This one has a number of blunted points and places where they don’t quite match up. I think using starch would have helped, so many of the pieces are on the bias. Next time.
Thanks for your kind comments and for visiting my eplace.
