Adding More Pickles to the Dish


 I've finished two more rows of my Pickle Dish quilt but I have no design wall so I'll break the rows into 4 block sections for these pictures. 


 This will be a wedding quilt for my granddaughter's hope chest. 
I will hand quilt it. 



And now I only have twelve blocks to go. All arcs for the blocks are already paper pieced. 
And I need to make a piano key border. 

I've used the pattern in Kaffe Fassett's book Quilt Romance. 

These are the first two rows.  I completed them in October.
