Finished blocks for new 2011 Blocks of the Month


Consider the Lilies is a wall hanging size series designed by Val Laird.  The theme for the quilt, and the introductory Bible verse, is one of my favourites.  A wallhanging size is a nice change from all the large quilts I’ve been sewing, and as a bonus, I was able to dig up enough scraps that might just last through the series. (Oops, I just realized that I forgot to embroider the stems on the leaves!)

Jewels in the Crown is a b.o.m. by Reeze Hanson.  I had a set of fat quarters – 2 each of several colours – that I had bought recently as a bargain on EBay and I think they’ll work well for this quilt.  I have no idea what I’ll do about the pieced sashing and borders, but I’ll figure that out as I go along 🙂  This is one of those pictures that really do not show true shading of the colours.
