Sweet and Simple

I've been busy working on Sweet and Simple.  It's being offered as a block of the month at Sew Graceful Quilting in both cotton and wool.  I am making the cotton version.  All but one block is created and ready to be blanket stitched on the machine.  The last block is the one with the most personalization and since I have no children (the pattern block has 3 kids) I need to decide what to use instead. 

Here's the quilt as it "supposed" to look


And here's some of my blocks







The barnyard animals are kind of quirky - the little pig looks more like a mutant rhino, but I thought I'd make it just like the pattern.  He'd be darling with a curly tail. 

I can't sit and sew all day long like I used to so plan to sew a little and work on the Friends of Baltimore border as a sewing reward.  Now I'm off to pull a variety of threads so I have no sewing excuse!

    1. They will be appliquéd with a blanket stitch. I usually prefer the invisible machine method with machine appliqué but thought the blanket stitch would be appropriate for this since it's primitive. Thanks!

  3. WOW.. You sure have been keeping your self busy. I love the primitive quilts you have been doing but I am anxious for you to get back to your Baltimore Album quilt so you can post pics of your progress.
    Have a great week.

  4. Kay, your blocks look fabulous. I admired this quilt when it first came out but could not afford the pattern.

    1. HOW DID YOU GET THE PATTERN? I WANT TO MAKE THE QUILT BUT DO NOT WANT TO JOIN A BLOCK OF THE MONTH CLUB.
