English Ivy

When I was younger I would dream about having a brick house that had English ivy growing on it...of course it would also be in the country on a great estate.  When I was that age I also didn't realized how much work it would be to have an estate or how large of an income it would take to own one.


I finally got my English Ivy, and the best part is that I don't have to trim it and it didn't cost me much at all, just about a 1/2 hour of my time.  It did also allow me to dream once again about that estate with the brick house and the English Ivy growing up the side.  This is block number 181 of 366 and it is a 6-inch block.  I'm linking with Can I Get a Whoop Whoop?  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

Great block! And so much easier to take care of than a real ivy covered estate!! Whoop whoop!!

I love your block. I have two quilts made from that pattern--one from around 1910 and another that I made around 1990. It is a great pattern.
