SOUR APPLE TREE

THE BARBARA BRACKMAN BLOCK # 46 IS CALLED SOUR APPLE TREE.




SINCE WE ARE GETTING SO CLOSE TO BEING DONE WITH INDIVIDUAL BLOCKS , I HAVE MADE SOME DECISIONS ON SETTINGS.  AT FIRST I WAS NOT GOING TO HAVE SASHING ,  HOWEVER NOW I WILL NOT ONLY HAVE SASHINGS BUT ALSO CORNERSTONES.   I PICKED A SMALL NINE-PATCH AS MY CORNERSTONE . THREE RAILS AS MY SASHING. 



MY STRIPS ARE 1 1/2 " WIDE.  


I WENT WITH A BROWN WITH RED DOTS OF COLOR AND  A LIGHTER BACKROUND WITH BROWN PAISLEY FIGURE ON IT. THESE WILL BE MY NINE-PATCH CORNERSTONES.



MY SASHING STRIPS ARE ALSO 1 1/2" WIDE EACH  ; A TEA STAINED OFF WHITE WITH A RED PRINT.


HERE ARE FOUR BLOCKS TOGETHER ,  MAYBE WITH A LITTLE MORE SEWING TIME,  I WILL HAVE SOMETHING SOON FOR YOU TO LOOK  AT!   NOW I  AM OFF TO BAKE SOME PUMKIN COOKIES FOR MY HUBBY.      MARTHA
