We have important business. It’s the final installment of the Benjamin Biggs quilt. You’re getting both Block 24 and Block 25 today.
Benjamin Biggs Block 24


Block 24

I think this is one of my favorite blocks in the quilt. I just love all the leaves on the curved branches. The only information I found on the block maker was that she was born in 1827. The 1850 census shows her living with Benjamin Tayman, a farmer in Washington, DC. I believe they moved there from Maryland where they were born.

ss logo 2015 Sentimental Stitches™ is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary in 2016. I have so many wonderful things planned to share with you that I need to go over the list and narrow it down to what I think we can manage even if we celebrate for 20 months! It’s also the 10th anniversary for the web site and I want to be sure to honor and thank all of you who have followed me through the years. I’ll be back in a day or two……….or maybe three to share with you some of what’s going to take place. I have to save a few surprises!
