    Bountiful blessings------last six blocks

    Here are the last six blocks for the Bountiful Blessings quilt; there is one that is dated today but I had actually finished it quite some time ago and found I had forgotten to take a picture. The last block is actually from a pot that was made by my son-in-laws grandmother many many years ago, the pot was given to me by his parents and I took a pic of it, made pattern and substitued it for the Acoma block pattern that came with pattern (he is half Acoma and half Isleta) the Isleta block is the Wedding Vase in white, turquoise and coral.) I hope Betty won't mind the substitution but I felt it would truly make the quilt my daughter and her husbands "very own".

    Thank you all for your kind comments on the previous blocks posted and the encouragement. I am now on to the many little log cabin squares that make up the border and sashings etc. I have to take a step at a time as don't know much of what I am doing. Sincerely, AntyluName:  IMG_1084.jpg

Size:  68.0 KBP.S. The last pic looks smaller but it is in scale with the rest of them, also it is a bit brighter than the picture shows.

    Gorgeous! I love Native American Pottery and have collected a few pieces through the years. A few is all I could afford
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Where did you get this pattern. I love southwest stuff and would be interested in the pattern if I could find out where to get it.

    I was in The South West Decorative s store last month. It is wonderful. I spent way too long in there and of course spent money. Their web site is fun too. Its on my list of "must do" next time I go to Albuquerque. I love your blocks, the quilt will be beautiful. Be sure to post a picture when you finish.

    Your quilt is going to be spectacular to say the least. The blocks are stunning and I can hardly wait to see the finished work. It is a work of art in progress.

    Just wonderful.......at first glance I thought #2 was an actual pottery piece sitting on the quilt. The dimensionality of all the pieces is amazing.
