Mountain Laurel Sampler

A virtual quilt out of 20 of your versions versions of Block #6
Mountain Laurel. I put this up on our group page.

Robin Koehler showed one Polly Mello had just had quilted at Bellweather DryGoods. A sampler of red and greens. She appliqued a double dogtooth border around the edge. Lovely traditional take.

A sampler of Mountain Laurel blocks is a good idea. Simple applique, lots of fabrics. If you used the official pattern you've got room in the center for a sampler of birds.

I added birds to the center of some of your blocks:
Birds in the Laurel Bush
Eight birds I've copied from antique quilts. If you print them out on an 8-12/" x 11" sheet they MAY
fit in the center of an empty Mountain Laurel.
