15 blocks done for Follow the Drinking Gourd

Here it is - 15 blocks done! I"m not sure how many I want to do yet. But I"m pretty much through my stash for variety of fabrics, so I may just wait now until after Christmas and pick up some FQs when I got to sew end of January with Laura and Linda. I have plenty to keep me busy until then anyway!

Every time you make something new I have to shove another thing into my list of cool things to do! Stop it! *G*

Blues and cheddars aren't in my stash, but others would work too for this!???!!

It is going to be just beautiful -- but, don't you have Christmas sewing to do? Or am I the only one who waits 'til the last minute?

Lovely work!! I sure like that block and the secondary pattern it forms when put together. Your color choices are great, too.

The first blocks look great. An excuse to buy more fabrics? Good idea! Take care.

Dawn, the blocks look great. It really is dangerous to visit blogs - I often find projects I would like to sew ;-). Wish you a nice sunday and thank you for visiting my blog. I am looking very much forward to see my RR.
Hugs Anne-Mette

Those blocks look mighty familiar! I have 17 of the 8" version done. The big quilt (12" blocks) needs one more border strip!

I'll have some blues and butternuts for you on Wednesday.

These blocks are looking spectacular. This is one I'd really like to do - and I know i have lots and lots of fabric that would work for it. I always loved that song!
