Tuesday Quilt Block August 19

It's a sunny Summer day! And this mom is happy because the children start school tomorrow!

Let me share a quilt block, this one more complicated than last week's.


This Jane block is called Cabin Fever, and is A-9.  Careful paper piecing is needed for the center to look its best.

I am linking up with Connie at Freemotion by the River and Quilt Story as I do most weeks I have blocks to share. Both blog hops have of pictures of pretty quilt blocks and other projects. I am also joining Work in Progress Wednesday - some colorful and interesting projects there!

PS:  I was featured in this week's Quilt Story post!  I am so excited!  See my blog entry for Aug. 12.

Tuesday Quilt block August 12

How the week are flying, this middle part of August, as school approaches! My children will be starting August 20.

Well it is Tuesday, so time for a Tuesday quilt block.


This block is called the Arrowhead and has some great graphic possibilities.  Strictly speaking it is not a Jane Stickle block, but the pattern is included in the Electric Quilt Jane Stickle computer package.  I am sure it will fit in well with the other blocks.  The EQ software has been so useful over time!  If you are thinking about a Dear Jane quilt I highly recommend it.

Tuesday Quilt Block August 5

Back after a short break! It is cool and cloudy this morning, not really great summer weather.

However, it's Tuesday, and time to share a Jane Stickle block.  Luckily she made some easy ones among the complicated pieced and applique blocks:


This is for my on going project of Jane Stickle blocks done in 1930's  and 1940's reproduction fabrics.  time to make some more!

Tuesday Quilt Project July 22

Today I do not have a quilt block, but I do have a work in progress.

I have been working on a new throw or nap quilt for myself this past month or so.  It is using actual fabric and feedsack scraps from the 30's and 40's that I have purchases from people on line and ebay.  The top is together and looks like:


I'll add that the muslin squares between the four patches is new.  All other fabric is old, but for the most part pretty sturdy.

I am now auditioning feedsack fabric for a simple 4 inch or so border.  This lavender print has risen to the top:
