Wednesday Working – Jericho Block

The weather hasn’t gotten any warmer here. In fact we had seven inches of snow last Saturday, so I’m still 100% indoors working on the labyrinth quilt. The quilt has just two types of blocks and yesterday I managed to finish the first block, the Walls of Jericho block:

There are five of these blocks that are about 24″ inches square. It’s been a lot of sewing, but now I’ve moved onto the next block. There is one more class for this quilt this week and I hope to be up to attaching the boarders by then.

I’m also hopeful that warmer weather is in store so I can start on some yard and wood working projects. If you need me, I’ll be checking the weather reports.

  2. Looks great, Andrew! We’re still getting rain and storms here too. We need it, but I think many are ready for spring to arrive.

    What a fun project–says the woman who can’t sew buttons on. Are these hand sewn or machined? I’m impressed. Terrific job

    Very cool! It’ll look very strange if you lay it on the floor when it’s done!

    Happy quilting!

    You must be some kind of masochist to tackle a pattern like this! So intricate. I love the neutral colors. Reminds me of Two Gray Hills rugs in New Mexico.

  9. Wow, those are a LOT of diagonals and mitred corners. This looks like a tricky pattern. It’s tough to sew accurately enough to make those thin white ‘walls’ look good, but you’ve done it! πŸ™‚

    It looks like a cool project, not an easy one. I like how it’s turning out.

  11. A trompe d’oeil. I see the pattern two different ways with the blocks going invward and seeing it differently outwardly. Nicely done
