Summer afternoon - summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.
- Henry James
A quilt for my newest grand-nephew. Based on Mother's Choice (The Kansas City Star 1946), it is # 3051 from Barbara Brackmans's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns (1993). It measures 38" x48".
A block from my Quilt for Pulse. The center heart pattern is from Cluck, Cluck Sew, as recommended by the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild. They are an incredible group of people. Thank you, Alissa, for getting this together.
I have another grand-nephew on the way. I'll show you more of the quilt later. It is Boy's Nonsense from the Ladies Art Catalogue (c. 1895), #2811 in Barbara Brackmans's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns (1993).
A beautiful summer afternoon.
