Here are all of my Ohio Collection blocks to date. The blocks are from the Ohio Collection book by Anita Shackleford with substitution blocks from Album Quilts of Ohio's Miami Valley by Sue Cummings.
I haven't accomplished a lot of sewing this week, but I did the Double T block. I love to draw in Electric Quilt and print out paper piecing patterns whenever I can. The default block size is 6 inches. I completed the 6" block on the left, and then I checked the Ohio Collection book. The block was supposed to be 12", and that explains why it looked so out of place to me. So I redid the block to finish at 12", and the smaller one will go into my orphan block collection.
After returning from The Jane Stickle Retreat in Shipshewana, I had some catching up to do here at home. And, as you are reading this post I am on the way to the AQS Quilt Show in Paducah. This is my birthday month, and so far it has been just great with a trip to the Chicago show, and 6 days in Shipshewana and now two days in Paducah.
While I was at the retreat in Shipshewana, a couple of the girls were starting the Little Gem sew along with the Temecula Quilt Company. Since they sold the 1" Jewel paper pieces at Yoders, I decided to buy a couple of packages and join in. These will work nicely with hexagons, and I think they will add interest to a hexagon quilt.
