Ohio Collection Quilt Update

Here are this week's blocks for my version of the Ohio Collection quilt by Anita Shackleford.  

This block is Star Spangled Banner.  It measures 21 1/2".  Instead of using all templates as shown in the book, I made the half square triangles using Thangles.  I think it makes my piecing more accurate.  The top points are still there at the top.  Somehow I chopped them off in the photo.

This rooster was drawn by Karen Log Cabin Quilter.  The rooster is one piece, and I embroidered the detail on him.  He measures 10 inches square.

This block is called Periwinkle.  It finishes at 4".  I hand pieced this block.

Bears Paw - another 12 inch block.

These four 6" Sweet Gum blocks combine to make one large block with spacers in between.  

Be sure to visit Karen, Lori, Nancy and Cathy to see their progress on their quilts.

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!


  1. Your star is beautiful. Love that chubby rooster. : )
    The cute little sweet gum blocks are a favorite of mine.

  2. Wow--I love all your blocks, esp. The Star Spangled Banner star--awesome!

  3. Nice piecing on the Star-Spangled Banner block, drool. I also love the rooster. Thanks for sharing these blocks.

  4. Such lovely work LuAnn. your points are a dream.

  5. I am really enjoying seeing your blocks. The rooster is my favourite so far!

  6. You did so good on that big star! You got lots of the pieced blocks done this past week. I like the fabrics you used on the periwinkle and the bear paw especially.
    I am looking forward to all of us coming to the grand finale of having all the blocks put together into a quilt.

  7. I love all your blocks and the fabrics you are using. Looking forward to seeing your quilt all together.

  8. Great job on that star spangled banner block. I love feathered stars but they are a disaster when I try to make them. I love these unique primitive blocks. Very pretty!

  9. Love, love, love your blocks. You have been very busy. The feathered star is next on my list. Hugs, Cathy

  10. I didn't use templates for the big star either.
    Great blocks!

  11. Love your latest blocks, especially the star spangled banner and the chicken.

  12. Looking good - the Star really pops.
    Looks like you are having so much fun with this pattern.

  13. Love the rooster! Your details made him personal. Terrific star spangled banner, great piecing. I like your color choices.
