Granny's Hankie Block


I finished the September Granny's Hankie BOM block -


I really like this block - the tulips, the colours and


I especially love the stems (made with bias tubes and presser bars)

 All the blocks are now finished.

It was my goal this week to finish the last 3 blocks of this BOM! I did manage housework and cooking. but skipped exercising - oh well!


I did sustain a minor quilting injury - burned my arm on the edge of the iron as I was preparing the applique pieces!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Oh, how many times I have burned my arm on the iron. I had a nurse have great concern one time asking me how I got a scar. It happened to be in a place that someone would slice if they wanted to cut a vein. I didn't realize right away why she asked. I told her it either came from an iron, the frying pan or a baking pan.

Ouch! What a way to mark the occasion of finishing your beautiful blocks. Hope you had some aloe vera at hand. Happy Thanksgiving!

beautiful block and I especially like your fabric for the stems. Everything looks so good on a dark background too. Dang, sorry about your arm, that hurts!!

It look like a bad burn. If one put the white of an egg on a burn like that- right after you burned- with a lighter burn you will not have a wound. I use a Grassroots product with Cape camomile- has the same effect as egg white

Granny's Hankie quilt looks good.

Ouch - that looks a nasty burn. Love the colours you are choosing fror your blocks. hope your arem doesnt take too long to heal.

Ouch! That is such a tender spot and takes a while to heal. Be careful! I found that an old sock with the toe cut out and worn as a sleeve helped if I had to rest my arm on something.

The block glows! You know I love blue, but the colors in this one are vivid, yet subtle in their difference. Yep, I have a new favorite.

The blocks are wonderful and it is certainly going to be a stunning quilt - the dark background really sets it off. Happy stitching.
