Court Is In Session


Here is a Court House Step design, made with fabric made by Thimble Berry.  
I liked how you had to keep your thoughts in order while constructing this piece.
Each block, created the next color way for the ajoining, top and bottom blocks.


This piece was machine pieced and hand quilted.
The hand quilting added to the antique look of the quilt.
This is not my normal colors nor pattern, so it was a fun to try something new.

Till we quilt Again,

  5. Great Quilt! I have always wanted to make one but it always make my brain work so hard just to think about it that I haven't gone there yet.

  6. Beautiful quilt. I'm impressed that you had quilted it, that is awesome. I've always wondered why they called them court house steps since to me it looks like Japanese lanterns.
