Chester Criswell Block 6

This week I finished block 6, Reuben Haines Stubbs block.




 The Chester Criswell Quilt will be my first red and green quilt.  I am looking forward to seeing which block Sharon chooses for block 7.

Is anyone else making this quilt?  Each month Sharon sends great instructions along with some fascinating  history behind the maker of each block.

I'll be back soon with some more stitching.

It turned out beautifully! Did you make it the size of pattern or enlarge? I enlarged my pattern to 120% just to fill up the block a little more. I still must finish block #5 before I let myself sew on this one. I have completed the first 4 and really have explored new skills with the varied types of block designs. It is good to branch out of my usual with these quilt patterns! I can't beat the support from others making blocks. That has probably kept me going!
