This is the first block we laid out, it's called Anvil... turns out there are two blocks that will be alternated. The second is the large HST which we had cut but that's as far as that got :0)The basis for this design is an antique quilt top that followed me home one day. Unfortunately, the dark brown and black fabrics were flaking away as I held it up to admire it. I decided it was too far gone to try to restore it, so the next best thing was to attempt to recreate it with new fabrics.You might notice that a few of the Anvil blocks have been turned in the “wrong” direction, which is exactly how the original quilt top was made!
It was very nice to have some time off for the holidays. This weekend will be more football with the Pro playoffs while I finish blocks for this quilt as well as two more quilt projects I have in the works. Amaretto Cottage and a Tree of Life quilt. Monday will be back to work longarm quilting quilts promised 'after' the holidays :0)
Enjoy your weekend! Thanks for checking in
Looking forward to a new year and finding out what you all are up to :0)
