I’m really excited that several readers are stitching along with me — Patty and Robin are making their blocks 6″, while Cathy is following the original instructions, and making her blocks 10″.
Here is Mother Goose Quiltie #3
Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water;
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.
Jack and Jill! They did not do anything so wonderful, yet ‘most every child in the country knows about them. They are about the best loved of all Mother Goose’s children; but it must take a lot of loving to make up for a broken head. This Quiltie picture is on the way up, before they got all tumbled. You would not want them after the spill, ’cause they would not look so tidy.
Are you saving each block carefully?
Here is my doll-sized Jack and Jill block, which I made with my own little chubby hands.
