A finished block and a new name

I have finally finished the first block with all its little parts.  Can I say I'm smitten??   I took this picture outside so the colors are pretty true.  The contrast of the pink and red is so pretty and the greens and cheddar totally balance it out I think.
Here's the picture of the block that inspired me.  Considering the fact that I drafted this block from this picture, I'm happy.  All I know about this quilt is that it was made in 1860, so the name of my quilt is Jubilee Tribute.
There's more to come, the other blocks are coming along :).
Have a great day,
Karen

  3. Oh I love it!
    In my old book it's called "Coxcomb and Currant Variation" c1850 but your name is so more evocative. My version has wee little currants/buds coming out of the central square/flying geese arrangement. Can I send you a photo? best regards, Kate
