Teresa's blocks

Morning fellow quilters.
Teresa, your cheery '30's blocks are complete and will be flying over the Pacific to you today.

I enjoyed playing with the fabrics from my 1930's repro stash again - they are such fun.
Teresa's fabrics on the right, my contribution on the left.

I have 2 quilts in progress from that era; one is a top I rescued where the sashing had been nibbled by a mousie. It was quite easy to replace, so the top only needs to be quilted. It's a wacky string pieced tulip. The other is a fancy ninepatch - I purchased the blocks which needed the "melons" inserted in order to complete the top. The original owner did a nice job making the easy parts but must have baulked at the curved piecing!
Must get them both out for a little fresh air!

It's Friday morning here,  and my day off, so I'm looking forward to a sewing day in preparation for my monthly workshop tomorrow. Hope you all have a great day too!


  1. Thank you so much for the beautiful blocks! I love your fabric additions. I'm under the weather, and everyone's blocks are such a source of cheer and comfort!

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  2. Beautiful blocks!
    Can't wait to start mine and scrounge through my stash.
    Happy Sunny Sunday to all!
