Ladies' Aid Album Finishes


Jeanie Rudich has her Ladies' Aid Album sampler quilted & bound.
Last year's Block of the Month was based on New York sampler style---
lots of animal blocks and hearts in the corners to connect the blocks visually.

Karen Doerr Martin added an innovative scalloped border---
innovative today, popular back then.

Nat Palaskas pieced a 4-patch heart border.

And Deanna Street pieced one of diamonds.

Elsie Ridgley used a chintz stripe from my Ladies' Legacy fabric line.

Christine Hemphill Turner's is a New York wonder.

Rebecca Schnekenburger wanted a square quilt with 16 blocks
so added 4 including a moose.

Thistle Tomo in Japan isn't finished yet. She deals with the inches
 to metric differences in measurement without converting
 so her blocks wind up quite small.

She uses fabric well! Small pieces of fabric.

I added one more: Cécile Patchwork Inspirations has been quilting her blocks as she finished each---we call it potholder style in the U.S. And now it is finished. Superbe!
