This is my favorite way to learn history and since much of the information came from records and memoirs, it contains a lot of true history.
Though I usually try to find block ideas using a number of fabrics, I decided to go with something more simple.
This pattern is called "broken heart" and I thought each color would represent the two main characters.
Certainly both women were linked, not only by dresses but by the loss of family members.
The light heart print I used from the background is a rather light weave but I had just enough and decided to go with that rather than a bright pink and white heart print. I don't know how machine piecers manage but trying to figure out how to iron all those seams so as not to create lumps is plenty difficult when there is a choice.
I have made one more block but I am not sure if this is the right block for the March book.
The book is "A Drunkards Path" by Clare O"Donohue.
I have yet to try a drunkard's path block. but if I find one I like, this might become the default block.
The next few books I will probably have to send away to Amazon to buy, a but tricky without a credit card...
This makes 14 blocks but I think I want to make my quilt a bit larger.
I wonder who, other than Susan. have made blocks for all the books.
Thank You Susan, for the fun of a challenge I can join without pressure.
