MAKE-IT-MONDAY


The  Orange Grove Quilters Guild was given these hand-pieced, vintage fabric blocks.  I offered to turn the 124 nine-patch blocks into a quilt for the upcoming Tea and Auction in October.  My goal for this week is to finish the quilt top.  Still deciding if I will send it to a quilter or quilt it myself.  I'll know when the top is completed.


They are five-inch blocks and I am adding Kona Cotton, Natural.  No, it will not be hand pieced or hand quilted.  We want it for this year's auction.

Have a good week and

Quilt happy,

Marilyn

Lovely fabrics! Nine patch is my very favorite -- it's the first block I ever made.

The blocks look wonderful. I am always on the lookout for orphan blocks. Never cam across this many matched though. Can't wait to see the top!
