Burgundy Buck a Block by Cyndy Anderson


Cyndy’s quilt was a part of a block of the month program at a local quilt shop.  Cyndy decided to finish this quilt and give it as a gift to a male family friend whose health was failing.  Such a lovely gift.

This first picture shows the colour of the quilt more accurately.

Cyndy wanted custom quilting, so I put a motif in each square with some straight line quilting in the cornerstones and sashing and loops in the border.

Caring about others, running the risk of feeling, and leaving an impact on people, brings happiness. ~ Harold Kushner


  1. I really like your straight line quilting on this quilt, Edith - it looks great!

    1. Thanks Beverly, I'm still trying to get comfortable with custom quilting.
