Block 3 x 16


Block 3 from Westering Women
The Sweet Gum Leaf is one of my favorites.

You may recognize your block in this collage
I did of pictures from our Flickr group.

A  grid of 4x4 would make a 48" quilt.
Just enough applique to keep you entertained
during baseball season.

And it gives me an excuse to show you this mid 19th century version from the Pat L. Nickols
collection at the Mingei Museum.

Great collage. I like how all the stems are bending a little differently.

It is also one of my favorite blocks. Thanks for including mine in your collage. Great idea for the 16 blocks quilt. I am so much enjoying the Westering Women QAL.

I noticed the picture of the quilt on the Mingei Museum website shows the leaf with the stem up. The signatures don't show well enough to determine if the quilt is upside down or not, but what a fabulous dated quilt.

Thank you to show us all the Sweet Gum leaf together, I recognize mine, and they made a beatiful quilt! I'm looking forward the next block.
Greetings from Sicily!
