Block 40 Order Number 11 (the beastly block that finished up satisfactorily)
Block 42 H Is For Hospital
Block 44 Union
Block 45 Port and Starboard front of block
Block 45 back of block with seams pressed open. I've been doing this quite a bit lately with blocks that contain a larger number of pieces hoping to avoid lumpy seam intersections causing problems when machine quilting.
Block 46 Apple Tree
Block 47 Dixie Tea
Block 49 Yankee Puzzle.... totally messed up here.
I think it was when I realised I was going to have to unpick this for the fourth time I thought I'd better put it away for the night! I will sort this out but I'm posting it as is, to say it's done....sort of.
I'm really not half witted!! Let me say in my defence (this is a really simple block after all) I only had my computer for a few minutes to get the measurements of the block pieces because my 11 yr old, who has recently discovered the joys of online chatting to his friends, was using it and was making it nearly impossible to take uber quick peeks at the instructions. He did ask what all the cursing was in aid of and did apologize for hogging the computer later on.
So, now I have only one block to do to be completely caught up.
I have also made a couple more of the Rosette blocks in the gorgeous Luna Notte range, love that fabric, mmmm.
As the Civil War quilt along is coming to a close in the near future I am considering a couple of projects that have been occupying quilters in blogland (Wild Geese from earlier on this year).
Farmer's Wife Sampler
Wild Geese quilt along bloominworkshop.wordpress.com
Like all quilters I have a collection of patterns and projects I plan to make "one day" and of course I'll continue to be tempted by all the eye-candy on quilter's blogs, in magazines and quilting books. What joy!!
