Castle Wall - a SBS extra block


This is the first "extra" block I have made that is going into my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler quilt. It is a Castle Wall variation (variation because I did not piece the center, I like the floral just the way it is). This is one of my favorite blocks, and since I am trying to add ones that Agnes pieced, this was an obvious choice to add to my quilt. I used templates from the Jinny Beyer website, except the center octagon, which I drafted in EQ6.

This is beautiful, Connie! And a perfect addition to the 140 SBS blocks! I'm really getting curious about your setting for this quilt!

Happy quilting!
