UFO One Block Wonder

Marjorie Graham writes,

I’ve been working on this quilt top with a Civid -19 influence.... I had about 20 blocks left out from over from making the One Block Wonder Stack and Whack quilt we made about 3 years ago.  The blocks kept turning up when I was looking for other material.  Finally decided to get to them:).  
Will have to wait to get some batting to finish all the quilt tops too, but getting lots of sewing done.  

The front,
And the back!

Quarantine Quilts April 3, 2020

Bev Cooper  writes, 

Like many other quilters I’ve been spending a lot of time in my sewing room. This is My Enchanted Garden. My first wool appliqué project started in 2016 with Linda Prior-Hobbs. There’s nothing like jumping in at the deep end and although it has taken me 3 1/2 years to complete I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.  Wool and cotton appliqué on cotton.

The second is a quilt I made. I just thought it was cheerful.  Thanks for this.

National Quilters Day, March 21

These pictures were sent by Gayle Holmes in Kemptville.  

The first blanket was pieced 47 years ago before gender reveal parties.  The others were handed down to me, some likely made in early 1900’s.
