Time for another couple of Civil War Sampler blocks. It’s the first thing I do on a Saturday morning – check to see what the new block of the week is and read the history. I never posted last week’s so here it is: Cotton Boll.
I just love getting to rifle through my reproduction fabrics! A sampler quilt is just such a perfect use for them. The two fabrics that form the X go pretty far back. And then there’s this one: Birds in the Air.
I received my mug rug(s) from Natalie. Very modern. Aren’t they fabulous?
Here’s a close up of the yo-yo’s.
And I’ve been playing some more with the Spider Web block which I just love. This is a possibility for Doll Quilt Swap. Just one more block to go. The individual blocks will finish at 6" square.
I also got some very cute decorated pins from Mamacjt but I’m going to make up a little pincushion for them before I take their picture. Sometime this week . . . (when I’m not grading because, sad to say, both papers and exams came in this week).
