Louisa's Maiden Posies

This is another design from my friend, Mary. she designs quilts and sells the patterns. there are 4 or 5 of us that are her 'pattern testers'. i didn't want to make the whole quilt, so i just did both blocks and made a table runner. perhaps she can take it with her when she goes to vend her patterns.

It is called Louisa's Maiden Posies.  all her patterns are civil war named....after battles and places and such. i am assuming this Louisa was a central figure she found in her research. she usually gives us stories along with the pattern when it is finished.


It is about 39x15"


This block was the challenge for me. took me 3 nights. and a few ripping out seams. but it all matches up pretty well....after marking an X on the corners where they came together.

I used an off white Glide for the top and a So Fine light violet for the back. Backing and binding was something from the stash.
