Amish Circle Quilt Block #106 - "Cellar"
Started on 8/25/11
Completed on 9/4/11
Technique: Raw Edge Applique' and Regular piecing
This is such a cute block. It was really fun to make. (Yes, I remember even though it was almost 2 years ago.)
I am going to try really hard to finish this blog series but I'm going to be starting a new one as well.
For anyone who had been following this quilt journey, sorry for my long absence here. I've been stitching a bunch but haven't made progress on assembling this quilt top. I have all of the sashing but and the strips cut for the cornerstones. I just have so many projects in progress!!
This block represents canned / jarred goods kept in the cellar of an Amish home. Makes me realize I have never canned a single thing. I know my grandparents grew up doing that. I'm pretty sure my mom hasn't canned anything. Perhaps it is a relic of a practice that died out generations ago. Unfortunately, as long as I have a Safeway to run to, I'm not feeling the love toward canning my own goods.
I have started making my own taco seasoning. Does that count?
