The Criswell Quilt was made in 1852 for the marriage of Mary McClellan Criswell and Jesse Jackson Smith in Chester County, Pennsylvania. More than sixty family members and friends each made an applique block for the quilt. Learn about this and other signature quilts on this blog created by Two Bits Patches.

Some Finishes - Of Sorts
The last block of The Second Year of the Chester Criswell Quilt is online now.
Those cut-outs remind me of one of my favourite television shows when I was about 9 years old.
So, if this is the last block is the quilt finished? No, not quite. There are ten more blocks to go so there is a Third Year of the CCCQ. For those of you that have just discovered this quilt, there are plenty of blocks to come. Don't forget to share your pictures and your comments; it will encourage those of us that would like to get on with other projects. The next block should be arriving 1st September 2014.
I finished this quilt for my brother's birthday. I've called it '50 Cats'. My brother is now 49 and 12 months.
I always piece backs of quilts from my stash - it's fun and a reward for being disciplined and finishing the top.
