Elizabeth’s Pride blocks thus far

In a previous post I showed Lori Smith’s Elizabeth’s Pride pattern that I’ve worked on here and there.

I just finished up my 11th block and decided to photograph all that I have completed thus far , since I have worked on them sporadically.

The latest completed block  is the 3rd one over on the top of the collage.  I do not have a design wall so I was placing them on a little white board on the floor; helter skelter.

Prep work on the next one is started :

We finally had a frost that killed off the majority of my flowers, followed by rainy days all week, making it impossible to do anything outdoors in the way of cleanup in the garden.  More rain is on the way.

The back yard is too muddy….just chill indoors :)

I also finally completed the hand quilting in another Botanical Album block and have moved over to the next-to-the-last one.

These are big blocks so they take awhile : )

Finally, a Great Recipe for you  : )  A few years back, my Dil’s aunt had made this pumpkin pie cake. We all loved it and I made one later on.

Well, she made it for Halloween night and I thought to share the recipe again ( Trust me, it is a good one :)

    the pumpkin cake recipe sounds wonderful – might have to try that one of these days. we have not had a killer frost still – it was close one day last week but didn’t get us – maybe next week? We are windows open until Tuesday.
    love the quilts and the pets!

    Elizabeth’s Pride is coming along beautifully! We’ve had snow already though thankfully it didn’t stick around very long.

    Thank you for another recipe! I am still making and enjoying your corn souffle!
    Admiring your progress on the quilting. It’s a good day for it here, too. Dark, dreary, and raining on and off with more predicted. I’d hoped to take a few pictures outside today for a blog post, but that will have to wait.

  4. You applique so beautifully! I love these blocks. No freeze here yet. It’s quite warm today. I may have to make that cake.

    I think you will have a lovely top when you put these together. I didn’t have a design wall until a couple of years ago – just laid them on the floor and climbed the stairs or a ladder to get a look. It works.

    You have been busy with that needle! After finishing Baltimore Garden I didn’t think I would ever applique again, but they are my favorite quilts. We are having a blast of summer heat one never knows what to expect from day to day.

  10. Wonderful blocks, your applique is so pretty.

    We are having a rainy day here today too. We did some outside jobs yesterday, but will have to wait for a dry day to finish up. Today is a good day for some hand sewing. I always love to see your quilting and appliqué projects. Have a cozy day!

    All of that gorgeous applique and hand quilting. The signs of a very talented and patient quilter. :-)

    The dogs all look so comfy! Glad you’re getting cooler temps – makes the quilting easier if you aren’t melting from the heat. And your quilting just gets more beautiful!

    I have many of Lori’s patterns but not sure I have Elizabeth’s Pride. Your blocks are well done!

  17. Sarah says:

    Beautiful blocks and those dawgs sure look comfy! I love pumpkin but I couldn’t get my head around the ingredients and measurements! Love from the reasonable mild UK!

  18. You have some wonderful hand stitching projects to chose from today! Quilting or applique? Both are fun!

    Your applique blocks are gorgeous! I have one of her other patterns, and you’re inspiring me to haul it out – and also to get this one! You do such beautiful work!
    I’m filing away that recipe – it does look good!

    Your hand work is gorgeous. I love seeing what you’re working on. Now, I just wish I had a piece of that cake to go with my coffee.

  22. Kyle says:

    Cozy inside with hand stitching, pups, and cake sounds like a perfect couple days. Your applique blocks are wonderful and blending together despite the time lapse.
