1857 Album Quilt – Blocks 22 – 23 – 24


It's July! Where is the year going? I feel pretty sad that I've fallen behind in getting my blocks sewn but there really has been a lot going on around our house in the last month.


Our son Kevin was married in the church where both boys went to school.

IMG_7392 We were thrilled to welcome Lynne into our family.

IMG_7405His brother, Paul was best man and Lynne's friend, Maria was her maid of honor. I have a picture of the entire bridal party but can't seem to find it on the computer right now, sorry 🙁

IMG_7415 I was one proud and happy Mom.

IMG_7403 The day was perfect in almost every way possible.

I didn't get as much research done on these blocks as I wanted to but am supposed to leave shortly for the holiday weekend. If I can sneak a few minutes away and can find something to add I'll update this post in a few days but for now here are this month's blocks.


Block 22



The block is signed by J W Griffiths

IMG_7478a I selected this block for the National Cherry Festival which starts tomorrow. More on that later........


Block 23


IMG_7134a This block is signed by Rachel DeClarke

IMG_7135a I'm going to make some little 1/4" wide bias to applique on the cheddar piece before I sew it on top of the red flowers.

IMG_7136a I just love this unique and creative block.


Block 24



This block is signed by Mrs. Wheeler.
I thought I was selecting easier blocks this month but I think they'll keep you busy and maybe I'll be able to do a little catch up stitching at the cottage.
Every year when it's time for the National Cherry Festival I try to do something special that usually features red and white. This year I started thinking about the Just Takes 2 Quilt from 2012. There are 100 different blocks in that quilt and can you imagine..............you could make 100 different quilts from that one pattern!

Snowflake Quilt red and white 1 w
I took two of my favorite blocks and put together a couple of "summer snowflake" quilts for you. All you need to do is set the blocks side by side. I pulled part of the applique design out into the border to finish it off. I'm going to use some beautiful Kaffe Fassett prints for the applique and a black and white polka dot for my background but you could stitch them in red and white like the Just Takes 2 quilt. There's a variety of block sizes in the download. It's a big file so be patient as it downloads.

If you want to try your hand at some summer snowflakes you can get the block patterns HERE
