a Lion, a Unicorn, Deer and Chicken

Here are some new blocks for my 1718 coverlet reproduction. I used all kind of fabrics like wool, linen, cotton, silk/linen combination and different ways of appliqué.

This is the unicorn close up. Lots of blocks are made in pairs but this one is on its own. Like the lion in the previous photo, this animal is appliqued with a herringbone stitch.

 I used this stitch before as you can see in this photo above and wrote about it here.

This means that I have two more rows of blocks finished and can start sewing those two rows together. Hope to finish that soon. Lots of appliqué left to do, but I'm getting there!

Ziet er geweldig leuk uit. Moeilijke stoffen gebruik je, maar gaat je goed af. Groetjes ineke

Bij mij zijn alle blokken (gelukkig) af, ben hem helemaal zat, maar ik ga hem tot een eind brengen hoor:)

You're making wonderful progress on your 1718 coverlet! It's a great idea to appliqué in different ways. I like the herringbone stitch there. It adds nice interest to the quilt. All together, it looks great!

I like the folk art look of the animals.
