The last two 1930's Sampler blocks are finished and I started putting on the sashing and cornerstones today. I'm quite pleasantly surprised at how quickly this one went together! The first picture shows the Double Axe Head block--this one is appliqued--this one is a new one to me , but wasn't hard to do with Eleanor Burns method of applique where you sew a fusible interfacing onto the fabric with right sides facing, make a slit in the back and then turn right side out. It gives you such a smooth piece to work with and then you sew them down with invisible thread with a blind hem stitch.
The Flying Geese block was also done with her technique that gives you 4 Flying Geese at one time. The book I used was Egg Money Quilts by Eleanor Burns. Her directions are just great! I was so excited to meet her in person at the Quilt Show in Houston. What a lovely lady!
