To appreciate this quilt you must watch the reveal of the blocks. 
 
Here is a link to the video: Lizzy's LeMoyne Lillies Design Reveal
 
 
The blocks were likely pieced in the mid-1800s, before the American Civil War. I won the 19 hand-pieced blocks in an auction with the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum. The day I revealed them, I was astounded at their variety and the frugal pieces that was evident in the blocks. I was inspired to see what I might come up with as a design and this is it.
 
Let me know what you think? Should I make this into a pattern? 
 
It’s perfect for my Lizzy Albright fabrics so I’m calling it Lizzy’s LeMoyne Lillies
 
 

 

 TRY THE JIGSAW PUZZLE

Choose your own difficulty. Click the 9-patch grid to change number of pieces. Click the circle arrow to make the puzzle pieces rotating instead of stable orientation. Also, there are tips under the "?" on the upper right of the puzzle. If you'd like a full screen version, click the button below. Have fun!

I can’t think of any better way you could have used these blocks. Beautiful.

What a wonderful treatment of the suction blocks! You have totally respected the era of the package, at the same time adding the grace of your “leaves” and the modernity of rotating some 45 degrees. So glad I watched the reveal first and could focus on the squares before seeing you finished product.
