1857 Album Quilt – Blocks 62 – 63 – 64


It's hard for me to believe we've come to the end of this journey. For those of you who have kept up with your blocks and have only these three to complete - Congratulations!!! I'm jealous!!! I can't wait to see all the different interpretations of this quilt as you get them done. I feel very honored you've joined me in making this special quilt.

I'm taking a break from applique patterns for the summer so I can catch up on my own blocks from the 1857 Album Quilt but hope you'll join me in making the Simple Summer Sampler. Today is the last day to sign up! This quilt was inspired by a antique quilt too! I think you'll enjoy it and can read more about it HERE.

Block 62

This sweet block is one of my favorites. I love the simplicity of it and it's signed by J A

Block 63

This block is missing almost all of the embroidery in addition to the fabric that was used for one of the tulips and a bud. This block is signed by Laura herself. Remember, she would have been only 16 or 17 years old when she made this.

Block 64

There's a little sprig of flowers and leaves across the bottom of the block.

Lovingly embroidered by hand above the year it reads:

Made by the friends of Laura A Ackerman in the year.......

And with that I close this project with the 19th set of block patterns. I planned to have this run for 20 months to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Sentimental Stitches but did enough months with 4 blocks that we finished a month early. I pray your quilt will bring you much joy and happiness and look forward to working on another project together.
