Dear Daughter Block of the Month – Blocks 33 – 36


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


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.

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

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



Frances M Holton



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 and look for the listing for this months blocks. You can purchase the blocks for $0.00 (FREE) until December 1, 2018
