Old Italian Block Progress and Setting
Hello Dear Friends and Reader’s,
I thought today I would share my progress on this quilt and also my setting for the blocks. Here is the link to the blocks in case you missed it.
I have been making more blocks.
And here are my sashing pieces and extra cornerstones.
I decided to sash the blocks and add red cornerstones the same as I have used in the block. This creates a lovely secondary pattern which is almost like stars.
The sashing pieces in the white background are like the blocks. The sashing pieces are 8 1/2“ x 2 1/2”. The cornerstones are 2 1/2” x 2 1/2”
I have decided to make the quilt 7 x 7 blocks. Therefore 49 of the Old Italian Blocks Antique Style Made Easy.
It is going to make a good sized quilt. Here I am putting it all together. I’m using a 201k treadle you might have seen Alex Askaroff recently doing a very informative post on the Singer 201k machines. Here is the link. https://sewalot.com/singer_201k_sewalot.htm
I really love to use this treadle, every single time!
Now I’ve finished the 47 Old Italian Blocks Antique Style Made Easy, I have put the sashing and cornerstones in between . Hopefully you can see the secondary pattern I was keen to achieve. Like stars in between.
Here it is, laid it out on the ground for your perusal. I am making this quilt for one of my son’s. He doesn’t know. 😉🥰
I will need to get onto quilting it very soon!
