The Next Step

Just a quick post to show you some progress.  Here's what the little triangles became :).  Isn't that neat??  Since I'm making this just by looking at a picture in a book, I can't really tell how the original quiltmaker constructed this in 1860, so I just appliqued the whole thing down.  It's good enough for me!!

Here is beginning of the blocks. I decided on just 2 different fabrics for the backgrounds and a single background for the corner triangles and the border.  See the first few leaves?

This whole thing is such a learning curve for me. It's been a while since I've done so much applique and such fussy work.  I am a folk art applique type of person, where if something is wonky it doesn't matter.
But I am having a ball!!
Have a great weekend.
