This week's block is the Philadelphia block for Philadelphia Austen Hancock - Jane's father's sister. Philadelphia had quite a history of world travel. Go to the blog for Austen Family Album to see her story.
Continuing the usage of my blue fabrics for this block. I found the paisley fabric that I loved the colors, etc but it is a very loose weave fabric and was hard to work with. But the block turned out the correct 12 1/2 size so all is well.
I continue to really enjoy this project. Even the weekly aspect of the project has not been too overwhelming and is a nice way to start my week.
