A Little Porch Time-September

Hi! Here are September's blocks for Lori's [Humble Quilts] quiltalong:

Hands and Shoo Fly

Chubby Basket and Star, fixed now!

I love the hands! Heart-in Hand is a one of my favorite folkart motifs---and this is perfect, my hand and one for each of my kids!

Here is the original quilt by Lynda of Primitive Pieces, photo from book reprinted with her permission.

I didn't finish the tiny hands yet.

If you look closely at Lynda's quilt, below, you'll see the fingers extend into a spacer band at the top.

I don't want to sew my blocks together until I decide what/ how the two strips at the far right should look. I have a habit of my blocks not fitting together, so assembly and final stitching will have to wait.
Looking forward to October, can't wait to see what Lori has us do next!

Thank you, Lori and Lynda!
