My second block, quilted and bound. I changed this one quite a bit as I want all of them to orient on point. I have quite a few antique pieces of these wonderful c1890 neon fabrics. The 4 corner blocks will have the real thing (as opposed to reproductions) on the back. I just love this backing fabric!
This is the third corner block and is my favorite block in the quilt.
I can really relate to this designer. She was probably asked months in advance to make a block for this wonderful presentation gift and, like me, waited until the last minute. She scrounged what she had and drew the simplest design she could in order to finish in time to send it off. Yup, that’s me!
O.K., I just love this backing fabric too!
I have lots of antique scraps so I hope to incorporate many of them in this quilt. There have been very few reproductions produced over the years and I snatch them up whenever I see them. I don’t know why I love these so much since I rarely use black in my quilts. These neons just speak to me. Maybe I do have a wild side after all (wink).
There are 42 appliqued blocks in this quilt so I need these crazy fabrics to keep me motivated! These wonderful patterns are available on Dawn's Blog (Collector With a Needle).
