CCC Blocks 32 (& 24 in Green! )

CCC Block #24 - repeated in green ombre fabric

CCC Block # 32 in progress
This is the second to last block now in progress for the Chester Co. Criwell quilt. I also finished another oak leaf and reel (Block 24 Alice Richmond). I originally cut it out when auditioning fabrics for the block last year (green, red & mixed versions) and now finally sewed it. I have yet to determine how to lay out the blocks. I like how Sharon has one of each block for the pattern, but I have some additional special blocks swapped with others that I will be adding. I also want to write verses - sentiments from the past and scripture on most blocks. I'll be thinking about that and how to make it fit in with the overall look :)

I'd love to hear your suggests for historic verse or sayings to add to many blocks in this quilt. Ideas??

Congratulations on getting your blocks done. I have all of mine trimmed and ready to sew together but can’t deiced on a layout. I think I have enough blocks for two quilts.

You're nearly finished! I love the oak reel block all in greens. I'll have a think about the verses and sayings and let you know.

The original quilt has a few sayings.
'Remember me when this you see.' As one does.
'Round is the ring that has no end/So is the love for you my friend.' A little sentimental but I'm using it for the title of the ebook.
'Like a leaf we all must die.' One of the memorial blocks, probably not what you want to include.
Can't wait to see how you finish it.
