More Accomplishments

Linda H. fussy cut stars I think for her cornerstones
Basic Sashing for a Sampler
Strips and Cornerstones.
This is the same set I've planned for the new Block of the Week
Grandmother's Choice which starts today.

There are a lot of framed photo prints in this one.

Mieked's with a border of triangles
It's a classic and it works so well.

But of course, you might have your own idea---a strip around each block and then the sashing.

Sanguine Stitcher's strips are light.

Setting them on point is an option.

Magpie Memories

I enjoyed seeing the different versions of quilts done with your blocks. I do like the triangle border and love the last one with the blues and browns, nice color combination.

Wow - these are all really nice. I don't think I could pick a favorite. Love all of the different settings.

They are all so lovely. I think it's great that everyone has made this collective quilt become singularly individual. Thanks for all you do to make my quilting journey more interesting.

The blue and brown Civil War quilt is mine. With a better picture you could see a center block with a photo copy of the black slave, in chains, kneeling.

Hi Barbara
The ladies in my quilting class completed 23 quilts in the end. I have made a power point presentation of them all and would love to send you a copy if you can contact me. 10 of the quilts have been selected to be displayed in a National Quilt show here in the UK next August - with full credit being given to you and your fantastic blog of course! Hope to hear from you soon. Janet
