Sally Post Month 4

I did 4 blocks this month and decided to go in  the order the original quilt is. Three I did this month are with the pink sashing on the right.  The blocks are set in an unusual way which I like a lot. You can see the original here. I've ironed on scraps of freezer paper with the block numbers written on it. It makes it convenient for me, just not for a good photograph!!

Thanks for your input on Google reader. I've added a few options and I hope that helps.

Have a terrific weekend! I'm going on a road trip with my son to celebrate our Scandinavian heritage. Should be fun.

  2. I like the idea of you doing them in the order of the setting. I am still going in order of the pattern numbers. Just figure I can keep track of what I have done easier that way.

  4. Thanks for the link to the original quilt. I have seen the blocks being created on various blogs, but had never seen the inspiration behind them. It is a beautiful vintage quilt! I can understand its recreation.
    Your blocks look really good--and your freezer paper must stick much better than mine does! : )
    Is Sven going along on the Scandinavian Heritage road trip?
