Barbara Brackman's Hospital Sketches sew-a-long update


All 9 blocks in BarbaraBrackman’s Hospital Sketches sew-a-long are now quilted and bound. The patterns call for an 18” block, but I downsized a bit to finish at 17”.
Now I just need to stitch them together and add the borders and corner blocks.

This is the design I came up with for the corner blocks.
 It looked more than a little naked to me so I added leaves and I like it much better! 


 Once again, I am having trouble capturing this wonderful yellowish green background. These were taken on the same day in different light. The top photo is closest to the true color, but still not perfect. It really is a yummy color!


One of the great things about the potholder method is that the back can be as much fun as the front! 

I hope to have it all pieced together by Christmas. Do visit the Hospital Sketches Facebook Page (here) for all the fabulous variations. I am always amazed at the creativity of quilters! What fun!

Oh so beautiful! You have made an amazing quilt. I'm going to have to try this method someday. When it comes time to hand quilting I always go with the tried and true. And binding is my least favorite part of the quilt making - there's a lot of binding and corners with the potholder method. Still, it intrigues me and I want to try it. Lovely, lovely quilt.

Love your design for the corner blocks, and yes they really benefit from the addition of leaves - don't all plants?! Your productivity with these appliques always amazes me.

I love your Hospital Sketches blocks! I want to try the potholder method soon. I always love the way yours work. Plus I know I would enjoy sitting and quilting on one block at a time. All of your applique is beautifully done.

Again you have chosen such vibrant colors and they look so wonderful on your green background. The leaves were a perfect choice to fill in the extra space on your corner blocks.

Your blocks are so beautiful together! The back fabrics are lovely! I really like your corner block design - especially with the added leaves. You are stitching along so quickly with this project - I've only barely started on my borders.

This is just beyond beautiful! I love the way you play with background color--always so stunning. Your work leaves me in awe. Each block is so well done, and that is a wonderful corner block--good call on adding the leaves. The back is really fun. You are amazing, Wendy (and I want to see the rest of those socks). :)

Love, love love! Just stunning. You are a master with color! Your corner blocks fit right in.

Your version of the HS sewalong is amazing. I love your background and I hope I can see the color in real life. The corner blocks are great and the addition of the leaves pulls it together. Of course the berreis are the best!
Your the potholder Queen!!

Hello friends, this is my testimony. we are married for 5 years and together for 9 years. we were separated for 4 months. He wants out and is not willing to save our marriage. We have been a great couple (at least I believed this) and argue rarely. Months before he left home, he was so inactive and sleeping a lot. I realized he was having an emotional affair with someone and he confirmed that he was attracted to her. Then he said he is not in love with me anymore and can’t live with me. I begged, cried and so on for months. I needed help so much and i want my husband back to me I was surfing the internet when i saw a testimony of lady on how Dr Ajayi the great spell caster who helped cure fibroid and she was able to have a child of her own which in turn restored peace in the home. she drops his contact and I copied it, at first I was Skeptical about contacting him but I really need a lasting solution to my problem so I send him a message explaining my situation to him, He told me to be rest assured that my husband will come back to me if I should do as he instructed, I did all he told me to do and on the fourth day I got an apologizing text from him saying he does not know what came over him, on that evening he came back home and pleaded for all his wrong doings and since then our love and marriage have been stronger. I want to give special thanks to the great spell caster Dr Ajayi for his good job and for me making happy again in life. If you are experiencing same marital issue or you have other issues pressing you down contact Dr Ajayi today on Email: Drajayi1990@gmail.com or Whatsapp number : +2347084887094. He is capable of performing any kind of spell you can think of, i'm a living Testimony.
