|82" x 94" Noah and Matilda Album Quilt|
We are still researching the inked names and date on the quilt.
It is primarily red and green applique. Several blocks have pieces of pink, yellow and purple.
Some blocks are accented with embroidery.
Each of the four border corners is unique and included in the pattern set mid way through the year.
|Presentation Block Inking|
The presentation block is hard to read. The inking gives us clues and questions in researching this quilt.
Is the last name "Boyer" or "Boyce"
"United Lawrenceburg" or "Visited S.....by"
I think we could all agree the month of September is clear.
Is the date the "Sixth in 1851." or "Sixteenth of 1854"
What do you see?
Some of the blocks are embellished with embroidery.
Interesting to see green stems outlined in red, orange and yellow embroidery.
A few green tendrils and stems are also embroidered.
There are Forty-Two Eight inch blocks in the complete pattern set as well as the border.
The 12 monthly pattern sets are not in the order they appear in the quilt. Each set will be available the first of each month for 12 months.
Instead, we grouped them with a variety each month. Midway through the year we will start the borders. I prefer not to wait to the end to do my borders.
We are doing this pattern as individual use .pdf files that are immediately delivered to your email address. You print them on your home printer.
Order details are on the right side of the blog. Or, click HERE for month one.
What do you read in the inking?
Have a wonderful 2014!!
