The Raven…Appliqué Block of the Month

Dear Friends,

“Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore;-”  Edgar Allen Poe.

Our new 10 month block of the month which will start August 1, is titled The Raven.  Blackbird Designs used Edgar Allen Poe’s poem, The Raven,  as inspiration for this 9 block appliqué quilt. Each block’s name is taken from a bit of Poe’s poetry.  Have you read “The Raven”?

You can choose your favorite method of appliqué to complete each 20″ block.  Suzanne, our invisible machine appliqué extraordinare, will be making each sample block using her preferred method of appliqué.   If you have a chance, be sure to stop by the Quilted Moose to view the first two blocks Suzanne has completed. Everyone agrees…they are wonderful!   We are having so much fun selecting the fabrics and ‘Moosing it Up’.  The Raven in each block, whether perched on a pumpkin or silhouetted by the harvest moon, is sure to add whimsy to your home decorating each autumn.
