The square blocks are 4 1/2" in size. It's my interpretation of a quilt made by Jane A. Stickle during the Civil War. I loved making it although as you can see, it's quite challenging. While we were at Quilt Market in October I fell in love with another quilt. This one is called "Common Bride" and the original (and pattern) is by Edyta Sitar. Here's the pattern.
The little 4 patches are made up of 3/4" squares, the triangles are 2". Don't you just love it? I figure this is another quilt that will take me a few years to make. I really don't care how long it takes, it's the journey that makes it fun and worth while. I have several of the triangle/flowers finished and yesterday and today worked on the center star block. I found that the easiest way to make it was by hand. I don't do much hand piecing but this one came out the right size and almost perfectly flat. The colors are fairly true except the outside triangles are more red than purple.One down and 24 more of these blocks to go. And that's not even starting on the applique! I've got lots of fun ahead of me!
