Days off!!

 Today, interspersed with cleaning and laundry, I have made four Carolina Lily blocks.  I think this must be an old pattern...does anyone know?
And on the other end of the spectrum, I made some blocks from batiks.  I have very few batik fabrics, but love them for their vibrant color and crisp texture.


Other than that, it has been a quiet day.  Hope each of you out there has a wonderful Mother's day!!

Love those blocks! Have yourself some happy days off! I'm taking some time off the first week of June. Time to clean, organize and sew!

I've never seen the Carolina Lily block before. Yours look great in those colors. Nice job.

It resembles the Clover Blossom on this site.

Beautiful patchwork on your blog!
Best wishes!

Those Carolina lilies are lovely

This is an old pattern, but I have seen it called English Ivy, or Tea Leaf, never Carolina Lily. Whatever it's called, it's looking good!

That's a different variation of the Carolina Lily block than the one I am familiar with, it but I do love it! You are one very productive lady!! Have a wonderful weekend, Julie.

I think one of the vintage look quilts I made used that same block you call Carolina Lily. I remember sewing a couple pieces together the wrong way and having to un-sew a bit.
