A Visit from Beth
My friend Beth (http://www.quilterb-bethsblog.blogspot.com/) spent the day with me and made good use of the design walls in the studio.
We looked at one of the first quilts she made in the 80's when she was learning to hand applique. She's decided it's time to get a border on it and call it done....
One of the motivations to revisit these projects from the past is for Beth to have projects to work on at the Club's Spring Fling sewing days coming up at the end of the week. These blocks are from a basket block exhange and need to be sewn together, and then a border will be added.
These are Dear Jane (4.5 inch) blocks all done with batik fabrics that came from an online exchange.
And these blocks are all made from vintage fabrics from the 1930's and 40's. These blocks are 4 inches square, and some of them are comprised of more than 100 pieces!
