Judy what a beautiful block, lovely fabrics and wonderful points. I will have to check Jean Biddick out as well.
Here's a picture of the quilt that I've been working on and it is now halfway pieced. My deadline to have it finished and quilted, bound, and labeled is April 1st so I really need to keep working on it!!
It is a Wedding quilt for my Son and DIL. I've named it Woven Together in Time. Better late than never as they will be married two years this November?!?!
Patch Up America.....Make A Quilt
Jean I love this quilt, I did it in pink and blue and gave it to my dad after my mom died. It was so much fun to make and easier than it looked.
Great photo Jean. Like the quilt.
Jean you are as pretty as your quilt but we need a smile on your face - that quilt is gorgeous and I love the name - better late then never - I always say and so much love put into it.
I made a quilt and gave it to my son and DIL for their wedding and they were separated and divorced before their 1st anniversary... so later is better sometimes... luckily my DS got the quilt but she wanted it... it just happened to be in my laundry room when she was leaving (my son was out of town) - she asked and asked for it back but I had my suspicions about what was happening...
they are back together now and have the quilt back but for a while it was upsetting to me that she would think that something I had made with so much love for their marriage would stay with her and not my son... bad feelings there... I have since made her a quilt of her own so if they split again - maybe she will let him have the other quilts...
At least your kids are still married...

Beautiful quilt and I love the colors. Of course purple and green are my favs.
Jean - your wedding quilt is gorgeous. Does it go together like a bargello?Good luck on your deadline. You will get it done - I at least am cheering for your goal.

JEAN, that is absolutely stunning!!!!! I am cheering it on too. You can do it!!
Nana: Is it easier than basic paper piecing.
Nana & Gini,
I wouldn't say it's easier than paper piecing in general, but since you don't sew through the freezer paper it just comes off at the end rather than having to pull it off. With paper piecing taking the paper off is a royal pain IMO. I think it would also be more suited to situations with Y seams or where you would have lots of small sections to fit together if you paper pieced it.
Judy, that is a beautiful block! My mom use to take single blocks like this that she made at class and make them into little wall hangings like you suggested. She made an arrangement of them on a wall kind of like you would a group of pictures.
I think 2 years is an acceptable time period, Jean. I made a quilt for a friend and her DH for the wedding but didn't get it to them until 2 years after the wedding! LOL! Your quilt is beautiful, and I really like the name.
I'm working on the blocks for Moonlit Garden (MG). I'm about halfway finished with the block for January. LOL!
I can't wait to see your quilt.
Marilyn, you made a fantastic quilt there. Love the colors together. It sure came out nice.
