Here are the latest blocks on the ATWQS quilts I'm working on.
The first one has a bunch of "state" blocks, done in several locally inspired fabrics.
I did one of the trees in a fabric that has Washington postcards in greens and blues against an apple tree background. Then I bordered it with fabric from last years Western Washington Shop Hop. It has subtle images ~ the state bird, the state flower, year we were granted statehood etc.
I think these blocks look nice together. The overall quilt will have a nice eclectic look to it!
The next block is a 'liberated cottage' in the style of Gwen Marsten. I like this house on a hill, with flowers in the garden and butterflies in the sky.
Don't you think the neighborhood is coming along nicely?
It looks like my house on the hill block is WAY too big, but really it's not. I had to make it a little larger to get the effect of the hill and then chose not to trim it!
