My Town Home Block

I finally finished the stitching on my home block yesterday.....
Trimmed it back to 20 inches ready to add the borders.....
Not the best pics as I took them last night....
I think I will stitch a vine and flowers around the verandah post....
What do you think?????
I also added a small border to frame the block 
before I sewed on the three rows of squares....
I am much happier with this block than I would 
have been with the one in the Homespun Magazine.....
This is a pic of the one from the original quilt.....
I just think it all seemed to get lost in there....

Until next time, Happy Stitching

Kate

Beautiful block and whoever built that gorgeous fence did a great job. I think a little vine would be sweet.

Perhaps a future in designing? I think your block looks really good, the extra little border frames it beautifully, and I think some of your lovely stitching on the post would look just right.

It looks fantastic Kate - definitely a better option than the original!! ... This block was designed by the same designer, wasn't it?!
Perfect choice - it's all coming together fantastically!!

Your version is Sooooooo much nicer, really like your design, the vine and flowers to finish off, perfect!......I totally agree about the original, that is one busy block, way too much in one block going on for me...
