to make my blocks for my 1812 Block Swap, only 16 of these they are 8 1/2in so the HST are odd they are only 1 7/8ths Pattern again from Judy Hopkins 501 Rotary Cut Blocks I just love this book the colours are geared to that period and most quilts were star patterns. This is called Crown and Star.

Thought you could see the stitching better on the back.
Well it will be probably be quiet around the blog now I am back at work so that will eat up some quilting time.  This was most helpful while trying to get over my virus and then allergic reaction to the cure x2. I am not one to take antibiotics and now I know why!
Have a great week and thanks to those new people that are visiting and all your wonderful comments. Thanks to those that keep coming back I love to hear from you. To those that are enjoying silently thanks for taking the time to visit.

  2. Wonderful quilt blocks Deb. I'm impressed with the precision! Machine piecing isn't my favorite thing to do. Hope you have a good week at work.

  4. Great block! And your mini is lovely. The baptist fan quilt pattern is very enjoyable to quilt and it always looks so good when finished. Very rewarding.:)
