A Wedding Block…

In my Husband’s family there is a tradition of making a quilt comprised of quilt blocks made by family members for a newly married couple.  The quilt is gifted at the bridal shower to the bride-to-be. Mine, which I received 27 years ago, is, well, to put it nicely…ugly. The block my Mother made is very pretty though. She did an embroidery piece, which really means a lot, because, my Mom doesn’t like to embroider even though she did a lovely job. 

As a result of my seriously ugly quilt (some of the blocks look like they were pieced with old clothes…blech…), I have always made a point of making the blocks I create for the quilts that much nicer.

My favorite Niece, whose wedding I will be in this summer…great story, I’ll tell you about it later…wants a vintage theme for her quilt. So, here is my answer to the “perfect” block for it:

jayme's block

It is a hand appliqué block from a freebie by Erin Russek over at One Piece at a Time. I love her patterns! I think my Niece will be pleased!
