1857 Sampler- Month 2

Here is month 2 of the 1857 Sampler shared by Gay at Sentimental Stitches
I was going to try and have one solid fabric in each block..... Oops, missed one!





 Gay also has a template of diamonds for the corners. Since I am using fusible and machine applique I ironed my fabric to the fusible................ cut 8 1/2 x11..
Then sent it through my printer! It worked!!

  1. Your blocks look great! I've been printing out these patterns to use in the future and just love the diamonds in the corners.

  3. Lori, your blocks are wonderful. I have a question about the diamonds. Have you trimmed your blocks and have you placed the diamond points on the 1/4" intersection line. I'm afraid to sew them on the blocks until after they are sewn together for fear I don't place them correctly and they either get caught in the seam allowance or they are too far away and don't meet in the middle once the blocks are stitch together. Any advice?

    1. Hi Lin, I'm appliqueing the center, trimming to 10.5" then adding the diamonds approx 1/4". I agree with Gay on this one; if left to add them all at the end I won't do it. The original quilt isn't perfect and mine will not be either.

  11. Ok, I confess it actually took me a couple tries before I found the one without the solid. I think you're good. No worries! Oh, and they happen to be really pretty!

  18. I enjoyed seeing your blocks for the 1857 quilt. I'm doing needleturn so it's taking longer but seeing your finished blocks motivates me to get busy on my own.
