1857 Quilt Blocks and Dresses

I am doing these blocks by machine applique, which I like, but the downside is they are not portable! I ran out of corner diamonds and still need to do some embroidery. Yay! getting caught up on these a little.

I got these cute little dresses from Joan H. Thank you Joan! There is still time to make a dress if you want. I'm hoping to have them all collected and ready to go by the end of this month- mid October at the latest.

So nice to have a short week. Love to you all!!

  1. Beautiful blocks! Did you mean you ran out of the fabric or just the cut diamonds? I think I have some of that red if you need it. Love the dresses.

  3. I like the somewhat simple block with the stems, leaves, and berries. I have not worked on my blocks in a while. Too many other quilt projects that want attention.

  4. Is your machine applique raw edge, and do you use a blanket stitch or zig-zag? I have done so little machine applique that I am not good at doing all the curves and angles, so this looks hard to me!

  8. Those are wonderful blocks and really sweet dresses. I need to get my mojo back, lots of projects and things I want to do, so hopefully I can get moving again when the humidity goes away;)

  9. I am so intrigued by the corner diamonds in these blocks. Will have to think about that idea for a future quilt.:)

  11. I love the appliqué blocks! The little dresses are adorable. Portability is the good thing about hand work, but the machine is so much faster! I have started knitting socks so I have some handwork to do when I don't have a quilt to bind. Also, a little embroidery.
