Quilts in the Barn – The Spoils!

Oops, sorry! 24 hours seems to have disappeared!! But I’m here now with the final instalment in this series…..The Spoils!!

I didn’t have much time to check out the wonders available for procurement, but I did manage to snaffle some of Petra’s fabric….

And I did peruse Mary’s space and this delightful block caught my eye….

20131006-113836.jpgI especially love the imperfections; the seam where another piece of fabric needed to be added to make the block the correct size…..

20131006-114038.jpgthe basting stitches still in place…..

20131006-114134.jpgand the pencil marks – what else was she planning? Or were they left over from the original or another design?

Happy stitching

    The appliquéd block will look beautiful framed. Will you leave in the basting stitches?

    Oooh, what a cool block. And what quilter doesn’t hope and dream that after her demise, another quilter will find her unfinished work and cherish it. Well Done!
