Two more Brinton Hall blocks are stitched. Do you recognize the bird fabric in the first one? It is from the same fabric that I used for the four medallions in Birds in the Loft! I love the old fashioned look of those little birds. The remind me of pretty little postcards from the early 1900s.
I love the little basket filled with flowers!
That's a total of five picture blocks made which means there are only two to go! I've also been sewing together scraps for the pieces that will fill in the sides. I need a total of four of them.
I love making these fabric pictures framed with hexagons so I've made one as a centerpiece for a medallion quilt that will be combined with the extra rows of rosettes that I removed from Birds in The Loft. It looks a little insipid and pale but I plan to add to it so that it is more dramatic!
I've got another picture of one of my old incomplete quilt tops that I came across. I showed you a picture of part of it in my last post. This is the centre medallion. You can see there is a hard crease from being folded for such a long period of time. I estimate I made this more than ten years ago. I'm determined to complete the quilt top in the next few weeks so stay tuned for more pictures!
Looks like I've got my work cut out for me so I had best get going. Until I post again, happy sewing!
