Here are this week's blocks for my Ohio Collection quilt. This block is Hollyhock Wreath. All of my applique' is needleturn, so it takes awhile to do my blocks. I do enjoy doing my quilts that way, and I feel that I have more control over where my stitches go.
This is Sunburst. I used a block called Spinning Sun from Electric Quilt and removed a few lines to do this block. I used my Cherrywood hand dyed fabrics to do this block, and have actually cut into a few of them to do blocks for this quilt.
This is my Variable Star remake. I wasn't happy with the other version because there wasn't enough contrast in the center.
This was my first version.
My blocks are based on patterns from the Ohio Collection book with substitutions from the Album Quilts of Ohio's Miami Valley book. Karen has drawn several blocks from that book and generously shared them with the rest of us. You can purchase the Ohio Collection book from Anita Shackleford's website. The Sue Cummings book can be purchased from Amazon.
