This is what my design wall looks like this morning. I have parts of about six projects in the photo below including some Ohio Collection blocks, a Smitten block, and some orphan blocks that I'm putting together. I've worked some on all of these in the last week.
This center block is something that my daughter did about 15 or so years ago. Neither of us can think of what this was called. There was a book and a ruler, and the quilter appeared on Simply Quilts with Alex Anderson. My daughter thought this was something she wanted to try, so we bought all of the supplies. She made this block, pieced one of my Dear Jane blocks and did a couple of other blocks over the years. That was her venture into quilting. Now she is an avid knitter. The points on this block are dimensional. She did the block, but I did the applique center over again and appliqued the circle onto the green background. There are several layers all stitched together that couldn't be cut away, so there was a lot of bulk. Does anyone know the name of this block? I know it looks like a dahlia block, but the technique had a name? I think this would be a great center medallion for a quilt, don't you?
I hope you're finding some time to stitch today.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
