While I was cleaning

The other day when I was cleaning I found these unfinished/abandoned blocks that I made during a hand-piecing class ...  I believe it was around 1997 or so.

The sashing is from this Jinny Beyer border print.  The teacher insisted we had to have a border print; I found almost 2 yards of it stuffed in the same bag as the blocks.

At this point I can't remember the names of all the blocks but I do remember the teacher wanted us to make a variety of patterns so we could learn different techniques such as curves...

English paper piecing, sometimes called Grandmother's Flower Garden...

Is this a Roman Cross??

This is a pretty one

I appliqued this fan to a background

I can't remember the name of this one.

I made a total of 7 blocks, I believe the intent was to make a small wall hanging.  I won't make any more of these, but I do mean to put together the ones I did do.  Whether it's to be a wall hanging or a lap quilt, I don't know, but I do know it won't be hand-pieced.


  1. Seven is an interesting number to arrange. That stripe for sashing and borders should work well. Be sure to show us how it ends up.
