I couldn't make up my mind which style of fabrics to use, so I decided to go with fabric designs from two different eras.
Repros in cheddar and red and Kaffe Fassett/Brandon Mably/Philip Jacobs fabrics.
Here are my first 2 blocks. They measure 8 inches. This block was designed by Sherri Mc Connell of A Quilting Life.
Since my last post I have also finished 2 more Civil War quilt blocks.
Confederate Rose (well, Lily in my case Lol) and Ohio Star. I have more than 30 blocks finished now.
Recently Anna from Thimbleanna had a giveaway which I was lucky enough to win. :)
The package arrived during the week.
All tied up with string and a cute little note! Thank you Anna!!!
Here is what was inside:
Look at all those string colours! The Ruby charm pack contains some great fabric designs and colours. I have a pattern in mind to use it with.
During the week I also got out a project from earlier this year that I had almost all cut out so I could do some machine sewing (and work towards finally finishing a WIP!!)
So far only 3 diamonds are sewn together.
Now for the good news. I have been given the green light to hand sew again! Woohooo!!!!
It has been a loooong time!
Right next to me is the partially finished second block of the Roseville Album quilt. For the next couple of hours I am going to enjoy some hand stitching while watching the AFL grand final on the TV. My team was defeated last week, so I am just hoping for a close and exciting game. So far it is living up to expectations. May the best team (on the day) win!!!
