Dear Daughter Block of the Month – Blocks 33 – 36

Advertisements:

There's a great mix of blocks this month with lots of room for creativity. I can't wait to see what everyone does with these. I think you'll have lots of fun so let's get right to them -

Block 33

Catherine R Duhham

and

Abraham Dunham

Remember Us

May 1852

I love the striped fabric in this block. At first glance you think it's used haphazardly but the quilter was selective in the placement of her templates when cutting out the pieces. I really struggled when drawing this block. The "fussy budget" side of me wanted to make things symmetrical on the corners but in the end I decided to stay true to the block and leave it a bit wonky.

Block 34

To my Sister

Sarah -

Eunice Burns

Ill 1850

There's some great broderie perse on this block in a fabric we've seen before. Personally, I'd love a few yards of the fabric used in the donut!

Block 35

Prudence A Blackford

May 25 1852 Piscataway NJ

Look at the two photos above carefully - all of the green stems and leaves in the block are actually broderie perse from a familiar green fabric we've seen before. The pattern has guidelines drawn around the center flower to help you select a fabric in the appropriate size. I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone interprets this block.

Block 36

Ephraim

and

Frances M Holton

Ill

1850

This block has broderie perse on the four sides and corners. Nothing is symmetrical about anything except the donut. If you look closely at the corners, you can see where the quilter cut out pieces from her fabric following the flow of the sprig of flowers. None of them are the same. The sides are little bud motifs.

 

I guess that's all I can think of for this month. Click on the link below to get to the 5dollarbom.com and look for the listing for this months blocks. You can purchase the blocks for $0.00 (FREE) until December 1, 2018

    Just discovered your “Dear Daughter BOM” this morning. They are beautiful!. Love how you have described the block you have taken them from. I love needle turned applique. Not quite so good at it anymore but will be coming back to this page and printing off all of the blocks to have inn my pattern collection. Have a number of WIP that need to be completed soon. But have been looking for something like this. Love the fabrics and using both brodrie perse and regular prints. Have a great day. RYR
