At long last, I am adding a new post to the blog. You won't be surprised that I've been busy, when I tell you my youngest daughter is getting married. This is the wedding quilt.
One of the reasons I bought the top was the pattern (Brackman #4052). I didn't think I'd ever want to make one of these myself. There are so many strange shapes to cut, and so many Y-seams to piece.
But look at this! I actually made this block, thanks to Eleanor Burns. I had recorded this episode of her show on public television, and yesterday I finally decided to try it.
I could never have figured this out on my own. This is genius!
Be warned, however--there are still 7 Y-seams.
If you'd like to make the Bride's Bouquet block, the pattern/directions are in Eleanor Burns' book Victory Quilts.
Quilt in A Day Publications or from any other book retailer.
I'm not sure when I'll be posting again, but I'm not quitting!
Happy stitching today!
