Block 10, Iowa. I started out with this fabric placemat. Here's the link....Block 10.
But, ended up with this....I thought it went better with previous block. I don't know, maybe I'll change back to original placemat.
Moving on....block 11 was more fun than you can shake a rattlesnake with?!? Here's the link....Block 11.
Just loved sewing this little block....first time all around.
Second time all around...
Third time all around, almost done.
fourth time all around. middle part done, which, represents a little crocheted doily, which, my great grandmother used to make. My grandmother used to tell me that when we sat around crocheting afghans. Made me smile all the time I sewed, thinking about my grandma and the precious time I got to spend with her.
And, the yarn part, all done.
And, the little crocket hook added. I made this block in honor of my grandmother. She loved turquoise! Her favorite color. And, we used to have red crocket hooks. At least, I did. I still do.
And, bonus blocks this week! So fun. Here's one from Pat Sloan, Just For You
While these colors look so yummy together in person. They didn't photograph very well, so, I might remake this one.
And, then, this bunny block for Easter was so fun. Love how this one turned out. Still have to use my new Aurifil 12 weight thread to blanket stitch this. Get this block HERE.
Happy Easter everyone!
