One quilt, two blocks

From The Woods To The Water, 1983

I’ve been meaning to share this quilt on my blog, but never got around to it. I don’t like this photo, though, as it looks all washed out. I made this quilt for my father’s retirement in 1983. It is 82″ x 82″, machine pieced and hand quilted.

This little Dear Jane block is E-1, Aunt Exie’s Phlox, hand appliqued.

The little pink block is H-4, Abbey’s Eyes, hand pieced. Love the bright pink fabric!!!
