Artist's drawing of one of the Center Blocks - Airedale Statue


Artist Patty Eisenbraun not only drew five of the outer blocks of the quilt, she also created the 4 center blocks that formed the Town Park.  It is amazing how the pathway, that appears in the 4 different blocks sewn by 4 different block makers, connects so seamlessly.  

Here are some progress photos of Rebecca Eash's Airedales Playing Ball:
