Odds and Ends

A few more Odds and Ends of things I finished or did over Christmas. First off I finished all my Quilter's Blessing bluework blocks! Actually I ended up making one to many. There were 15 in all, but I"m going to use 12 in my quilt. Bea is doing a new BOM this year about Nursery Rhymes!




I also have to share with you a quilt a friend bought for me in SC this fall for my xmas gift! She found it at an antique store. Isn't it fun! The sailors are just too funny. They make me think of Cracker Jack!

Great stitchery blocks! Did you see that Bea added a 16th block that a friend designed? You could have a 4 x 4 layout. :) Happy New Year!
