Hallye Bone’s Leftover Blocks in Quilt Top # 124

St. Louis 018Last year when I went to Hannibal, MO or was it Hamilton, MO? Well, whatever, I met Hallye Bone, a delightful quilter and appraiser. She encouraged her guild to have me in St. Louis this summer. I went and had a wonderful time. They are a great bunch!!!! Hallye had been mailing me blocks, new and old. So, I wanted to make something before I went to St. Louis to show her that I do appreciate leftovers. The first thing I did was cut up a  big white and light blue block in four parts.  I needed to spread it around, because I had the center applique block that was kinda like a wheel, and four leaf  or bear claw blocks. I laid them  on the tables in the studio and started just moving them around until something clicked. I had some crazy quilt borders and some triangle borders that I incorporated in with  her blocks. It needs a couple of more borders, but here is a great start.St. Louis 018scrap top 124scrap top 124 b
