What An Antique Quilt – Beyond The Cherry Trees Block 2


At first glance you think these blocks are pretty simple red and green applique designs but let me tell you, nothing is symmetrical, square or straight in any way. What a dilemma! How much do you change? How symmetrical do you make them? What to do when a hidden quilting design overlaps from one block to the next? These are things I've really struggled with doing this easy block I chose for November.

You can get Block 2 here.

Here's what I came up with. I drafted the block more symmetrical than the original as you'll see when comparing the pattern to the photo of the antique block.

I'm going to draft the quilting motifs on individual pages with the seam lines marked where they overlap blocks and label which side belongs on which block. I'll post them separately.

The morning is about gone so I'm going to get dressed and head over to town. Diane wants a picture of the fat quarter boat at Lolly's and to answer the question "where is everyone in the sewing room"? We asked the same questions and have no clue. Maybe they were all tired and went to bed early!

The November Sally Post Floral Sampler Quilt block is posted too.
