My Quilt Blocks

I've finished my blocks for the Quilt Story Block Party. Here they are...

Dusky Log Cabin

I went with one of my favorite type of block, the good old Log Cabin. I chose fabrics that had a vintage vibe and muted colors so to stay true to the "traditional" theme.

This block is created with bright and happy fabric from the new Darjeeling line. A new block design for me. I'll be making a tablerunner with this block and more just like it with different fabrics from the same line.

Persimmon Tree

Persimmon trees are gorgeous when all the leaves have fallen and just the fruit remains. I used Laura Gunn's Lantern Bloom for the persimmon appliques and framed it with Chinese Take-Out and Flower Power fabrics I thought it would make a beautiful pillow with an Asian flair!

  1. I love all of those! I can't tell from the photo -- is the tree trunk stiching? Regardless, it's beautiful.
