Happy 4th of July
Two more applique blocks are completed. The Golden Hine ( Ladies of the Sea -Sue Garman pattern) is from 1577. It is an English ship and was the first ship to sail around the world with Sir Frances Drake. The red and green block was based on a block from the Circuit Rider Quilt (pattern by Jenifer Dick). Both of these blocks were a little difficult, the ship block had SO many rigging lines, and the red and green block is just odd to me, not really symetrical.
I just opened my latest purchase from an online quilt store. This usually gives my heart a little excited flutter, but I am sorry to say that I am now buying needle threaders in bulk.
Happy 4th of July everyone, have a great week!
