After several attempts to start this BOM from Jan Patek and Alma Allen, the first block is done. I decided I needed an applique project for my hands while I bounce back and forth from the sewing machine to hand quilting. I'm using the needle turn applique method.
The blocks are large, as in 20" square large. I'm using Brannock and Patek fabrics that I have been collecting over the years just for this quilt.
