Block #5: The Bird and the Nest


this is my fifth block of the Civil War Bride Quilt:
Currently, I am working on the sixth block: Flowers and Vase:
I am still in the process of appliquéing the pieces, but have made up my mind to change the fabric on the vase, as I think this is too busy and has too little contrast with the background material...
So, altogether, my blocks now are:
I think it is all coming together nicely...

Greetings, Britta


  1. The colours are superb, Britta!
    That is going to be a beautiful quilt!!

  2. Jane, you shame me - you mastermind of appliqué, you! I left a message this morning on your blog when I saw your beautiful ship. It is simply gorgeous! Wish, I had your skill! Are you following a set pattern (Sienkiewizc?!) or using antique block models form here and there?
