Jack Dempsey Blocks

A couple of years of stitching on camping trips or on the way to the camping trip and I'm finally done with this one....well except for the binding.  It's one of the biggest quilts I've quilted on the long arm in a long time. The blocks were originally bright white.  Not my style!!  So I dipped them in coffee and sprinkled them with cinnamon and ironed the cinnamon into the wet blocks to get that "just pulled out of a Grandma's trunk" look.  First time I ever intentionally wanted to stain a quilt :)

The circle quilt on the wall is getting a bit old to look at......I refer to that one was the Lucy Ricardo Go Bloots quilt.
