Noah and Matilda Album Quilt

Hey look! I'm finally getting a couple of these done! Dawn, Collector with a Needle  has done an awesome job of reproducing these blocks from an antique wedding quilt.

The plan is to combine them with my basket blocks so I've put them on a background of various shirting prints. I really like the way they are turning out.



Holy, Smoley! Can you say lotsa petals?! It's super cute.

I'm using some of the same reproductions I'm using in the pieced basket blocks.
On Dawn's pattern this basket is pieced. I opted to make it one piece. 


They are so great! If you've been on the fence about this quilt, I'd say "take the leap!"

  28. Well, just catching up with your latest posts...great blocks and I always admire Dawn's reproduction designs. She's such a wealth of information on antique quilts. Congratulations on your design coming up in the Prim magazine. I'm sorry to hear about the death of your quilting friend. Your post was a very nice tribute to her, her quilting and your friendship.
