2 more Civil War Blocks

Oh it was such a good weekend. I did so much sewing! But for today I"m sharing 2 more Civil War blocks I got done! Only one more to go to catch up from last week, and then it is on to this week! Oh and if your interested in what these blocks are, I"ve created a link to a pdf file of the list of blocks we are doing. This is just a suggested list, you can make whatever blocks you want. You'll find the link under the Sew Many Blocks blog ring box on my sidebar.

I didn't get a chance to take pics of all the fun I had this weekend, so you'll just have to wait - and now that it is the work week again of course I get so busy! BUT - look at what I did get done yesterday! I LOVE spiral binding my books that I use open for long periods of time! I can easily lay them open, or fold them back to make it take up smaller space. And these 2 books were the perfect books for binding this way! I'm so happy I had time to get it done!

If your interested in getting any books done like this, I have them done at Office Max. I take it to their copy center and they cut off the binding and then punch the holes and spiral bind them. I have a lot of books I use done like this. To get both books done the bill came to just under $7. So it isn't a big expense either, and so worth it!

I have my books spiral bound too and it really does help with drawing out the patterns. And I love the colors in your blocks - so vibrant!

Very cool, I might have to do this soon to a few books! Love the blocks. It's so fun going around and seeing what everyone has done so far!

Your blocks look great. I haven't done that with my books but now I'm thinking more about it. It's nice when the book will lay open.
