Intermediate Pieced Duet

“Round And Round” from the great Perry Como song of the same name. The block is called Alabama Beauty. I used the Orange Peel Deluxe pattern from Inklingo. The quilt is entirely hand pieced to include the borders. I only used the machine to attach the binding. Quilted by Margaret Gunn.

The Alabama Beauty block is by Nancy Cabot and was published in the Chicago Tribune in 1933. My version bears no resemblance to the traditional block. It was usually just two contrasting colors. More about Nancy and her wonderful block here.

Here it is at home:


And here it is at the show. It won second place.


Here is the blue ribbon winner “Remember Italy” by Brenda Lewis. The pattern is Judy Niemeyer’s Glacier Star. My foto is blurred – sorry.


Third place is Scrappy Serpentine Stars by Jackie Mooneyham. From a Bonnie Hunter design.


More tomorrow…..
