More blocks

Here are 3 more blocks for this weeks Civil War quilt. They are all turning out so fun!

And here is one of my night TV viewing projects! I just started it, so I have a long way to go yet. But I"m using Tracey's back-basting method - I really like it!

And here is one other very long term project. I started quilting this last year, but it has been put away for about a year now, so it is time to get it back out and worked on. I only have about 1/3 of it done, but I"m quilting it fairly heavy and love it so far. I don't get hand work done too fast, but someday it will be finished!

The blocks are each so pretty - you do neat work, but I LOVE to see a quilt in a frame, during hand quilting. Wish we were not all so in a hurry!

Libby said...

I'm enjoying see the Civil War blocks on everyone's blogs too. I ordered the books and they've arrived but I think they'll have to be a future project for me. In the meantime I'll enjoy seeing yours.
