What do you notice in this one?
Direction of the stripes?
Would you place the stripes on only one direction?
How about the piecing?
Would you put it in a quilt and cut off all of the outer corners?
See the make-do piece?
How about the bias corners?
Here's a detail photo.
See the corner piece - would you piece this way today? This was probably from a garment.
Note how small the anchors are in the conversational print.
This one has a nice red ground equine conversational.
The little motif with the horseshoe looks like it might be a bridal bit.
The set has over 30 blocks with wonderful shirtings and conversationals.
I plan to enjoy them as is.
I've decided I need more dots in my stash.
Here's the block detail - 7/8" sashing - pieced.
The dot block is also pieced - see the 1/8" sliver?
The blocks are hand pieced. However, where the small pieces are - machine stitching. Perhaps a clue the blocks were made from machine sewn clothing.
The back - showing the hand sewn seams.
See the pin?
This block has at least three 'patched' patches.
More stripes - any direction works.
Detail of the patches, and the patch.
Does the corner patch look like the corner of a shirt pocket?
Last, but not least - I used cheddar (orange) as my neutral in this Catherine's Garden block. It's been fun hearing from you and your fabric selections! Pastels, Kafffe, Red and green - all fabulous!
Have a great week! I hope it includes some stitching time.
