Mourning Wreath

This is the latest in Barbara Brackman's Grandmother's Choice Block of the Week, Mourning Wreath. No mourning going on here!

After a Monday morning of dealing with a computer virus and a clogged toilet, I have finally been able to find my way into the sewing room. Relax. Breathe.

UPDATE: The actual name of the block is Memory Wreath, not Mourning Wreath!


  1. another wonderful piece of work from you, you must have an amazing collection of fabric as you create so much that is georgous.
    Wondering why it is called a mourning block

    1. Margaret, here is a view of my stash reorganization. Only a couple of the seven shelves of fabric are showing in the photo, but you get the idea.

  2. I do have a large stash. I reorganized, or perhaps just plain organized my fabrics. It has made it so much easier to get to them. If you go to the blog site (see Grandmother's Choice badge to the right - just click on it), Barbara Brackman describes the history of the block. That may answer your question about the name.
