Mary's blocks 8, 9, and 10

Block 8

Block 9

Block 10

I've been stitching away but I haven't been home much over the holidays so didn't have time to press them after washing until today.  I used several greens for the leaves in block 8 but think I'll stick to one or two leaf prints for the rest of my blocks.   I thought block 9 was kind of folky until I added the bird.  I'm wondering if the original stitcher used the bird to fill in a blank spot.  I really enjoyed the ease of block 10 after the last few.  Also, in block 10, I just used one stem per cherry.  Having two didn't make any sense to me.


  1. Your blocks are beautiful! The greens seem so rich. As for the cherry stems....I am thinking there are a lot of things about this quilt that don't make sense, but yours look great.

  2. The blocks look fantastic, I love that apricot or butterscotch colour.

  3. Lovely blocks Mary!!I contemplated doing the bird blue but stuck with Gay's suggestion of purple.

  4. Very nice blocks. I'm glad I'm behind so I can see others selections and ideas. I agree with Mimi, lots doesn't make sense on this. It's fun though, and we are all goign to have amazing quilts when we finish.
