My Little Corner of the World

1, 0...


This is "BRC, Sarah Jane", an intermediate-level corner piece for which I used the raw-edge machine-buttonhole stitch method of applique. On Jane Stickle's original quilt, this is the place where she embroidered the words...
In War Time
 1863
 Pieces 5602 
Jane A. Stickle

I'm not sure if I will embroider anything on this block or if I will just put a label on the back of the quilt. I'll decide that once the quilting and binding are finished.

So, this is it...the last of the blocks/triangles/corner kites. Now I will add a border around the entire quilt which will be scalloped later on. Stay tuned next week for a photo of the entire top....Can you stand the excitement?

congratulations from Australia - I have almost finished the centre of mine, bottom line to go. Have been quilting each block as I sew - haven't decided whether to tackle the triangles or give it a different border treatment. Its certainly been a challenge!
