My Favorite Quilt Blocks

image
I said I’d show close ups of some of the blocks when I shared the entire quilt. These are some of my favorite blocks. You also can see the quilting detail so much better on them.

I enjoyed doing a little embroidery on this block. Appliqueing the birds was a challenge as they were so tiny.

This beehive block also allowed me to do some hand embroidery.  There was just enough embroidery on this quilt to make it enjoyable.

This block had a lot of tiny applique pieces. By the time I got to this one my applique skills were back on track.
These are only 4 of the nine blocks in the quilt. They are also the most complex.
You can click on each block to see them enlarged. This will also allow you to see the quilting stitches better.

Nice work. And it must feel great to have it hanging where you can enjoy it often.

Nice to see hand quilting. Lovely quilt - and yes, it is different from the works I've seen.
