Erica Cannon has her Yankee Notions top done.
She's standing on a ladder because she made two of some
blocks to make a larger quilt.
Several stitchers have finished their sampler of the twelve blocks
from our 2020 Block of the Month Yankee Notions.
Twelve blocks with monthly tales about Yankee Notions---
philosophical, cultural and tangible---versus Southern Notions.
Ginny's first block
The stories tell us about a large and diverse country with some
very different cultural baggage we carry into the 21st century.
Jean Etheridge's is quilted & bound.
She found the perfect Yankee Notions print
Quilting by Becky Collis
Sara Reimer Farley used a spool as a cornerstone
in her sashing.
Each of her blocks has an appliqued Yankee Notion, scissors, sewing machine, etc.
Becky Brown's red, white and blue model.
She often makes quilts for veterans. Lucky family
to get this one.
Carol Cook Morton's
Stripes & plaids
Dorry Emmer's #1. She made model blocks in two palettes.
