This was another easy and fun block to make. Since there were only two small curved patches, I did them by hand. I chose simple quilting, just a wishbone inside the lemon, echoing outside, and some light outlining to set off the white square and the corners. I used a thread that would show up inside the lemon (risky!) and I’m happy with how it turned out. For once I don’t even mind that the curved patches don’t line up on both ends with the rest of the lemon 🙂
Lemonade is block 34 of the Splendid Sampler and was designed by Amy Gibson. Read her sweet story about the inspiration for this block: how a heartbreaking quilt disaster (the lemons) turned into a beautiful story of family, friends, love, and support (the lemonade!).
