I was at a local antique store recently and came across this collection of aged irons. The iron is an iconic symbol, for better or worse, closely linked to women’s work. Quilters, too, are closely linked to our irons. They perk up our seams, fuse our appliqué and steam our blocks til they lie flat.
Grandma’s Flower Garden is the quintescient quilt pattern. So beautiful with all those neat little hexagons and so difficult with all those neat little hexagons! But how could I not include Grandma’s Glorious Garden as our G block? This is surely a historic block and will undoubted enjoy continued popularity.
Here is our 12th Block of the week in the 2012 Quilter’s Alphabet Series. How could a quilter think of the letter F and not think about the sweet Fan Block or of that wonderful quilter’s aid… Paper Backed Fusing!
This is our 11th block of this Block of the Week series. I hope you are enjoying this project as much as I am. I do love a project where each block makes you smile!
I know, I know… This is a crazy patch block, but the Embroidery you put on the block will be the Elegant Embellishment. Whether you do Exciting machine Embroidery or Enchanting hand Embroidery, this block will be Exhilarating!
