Ella Maria Deacon Quilt – Month 10


It's time for another set of Ella Maria blocks. It's hard to believe this is our 10th month. That means we're almost half finished with the quilt. I have some interesting blocks for you today. There's some patchwork and some applique - a nice mix.

What a pretty and classic block. Each diamond is pieced down the center giving a unique look to the star. You could piece rectangles together along the long edge and then cut your diamonds from each unit. Piece the star by hand or machine.

The math on this one just didn't work out so it's presented as foundation paper piecing pattern. Watch your color placement as the four Ohio Stars are melted together in this block.

A Dresden plate block taken up a notch! Connector corners and the extra rings in the center. The light blue/gray was an interesting fabric choice in the original block. 


Block 40

Wow! What a great block. I suggested piecing the individual diamonds in pairs before appliqueing on the background. A simple shape used in a special way makes for a great quilt block!


Have a great month everyone and stay well!
