1718 Coverlet quilt along contines!
This is a 9" block that is found in the bottom center row of the quilt. I went ahead and decided on the fabrics for the larger blocks so that I wouldn't run out of pieces large enough (I'm working from a fat quarter bundle mostly). I decided not to piece the background because I like this fabric so much. I have simplified or reduced the pieces in many of the backgrounds because my fabrics are busy and I didn't want to loose the pretty patterns by cutting them too small. I have tried to stay true to the colors for the most part, and I've tried to mimic the background piecing even when I change it a bit. I like to think that the maker of the original would have done so as well if she had printed fabrics to work with as well. At the very least, I hope she would approve!
Enjoy every block!

Very sweet block!ReplyDelete
Great block! Your appliqué looks perfect. Good idea to make the larger ones first.ReplyDelete
FWIW, I approve! I like the concept of less busy-ness.ReplyDelete
Beautiful block and perfect applique!ReplyDelete
I like the applique blocks simplified--some of them don't make sense to me otherwise. You are going to have your entire top done before I even find time to start the April blocks--lol!ReplyDelete
