|Block 18 Mary McKissick|
I spent a bit of time trying to discover what flower was represented by this quilt block. I use Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Applique to search for the Chester Criswell Blocks. I could not find a picture of this pattern but I did notice that lots of floral blocks were called rose, lily or tulip. I thought a lily was the best choice, so Block 18 has become the Chester Lily.
Did you know that you can write reviews of the patterns on the website Two Bits Patches? If you go to the product page for CCCQ Block 18, there is a Description tab and a Review tab. You can submit a review about your favourite block. The review may have to be approved before it appears - I'm not sure because no one has submitted a review before now.
There are a few finished Chester Lily blocks. If you have blogged and would like to share, you can link up below. Or you can put a photo on the Facebook page. Looking forward to seeing your work - and reading your reviews!
