What's Big Yellow Thing In The Sky???

Oh my, I think it is the sun.  It's been so long. 

I've been doing a lot of hand work so there is not too much to share today.  I finished machine quilting my 20 year old Churn Dash quilt yesterday and attached the binding.  I am about half way done stitching the binding down so when I'm done I'll post a picture. 

Since I found my fabric for my Thread Head quilt-a-long quilt, I cut the sashing, border and cornerstone pieces.  There are 2 spaces open for the last block.  Once Joanne posts it I will start finishing sewing the rows together.  I was going to start today but I thought I'd wait.  Besides I keep changing the block placements.

Yesterday I read and watched Joanne's tutorial on doing feather free motion quilting.  It is so informative and very easy to follow.  I'm hoping to find the time to try it today. 

I made the latest Barbara Brackman Civil War Block this morning.  I am really enjoying the history  behind the blocks.   My husband is a big Civil War Buff so enjoys ready about the blocks and the quilts also.

The plan for today is to piece the background for the next Henrietta Whiskers BOM.  These are so cute.  After that its more hand work.

Well, I hope where ever you may be that you have at least sunshine and maybe even some warm temperatures.  Wishing you a quilty day.

Hugs, Cat

I can't get enough of your CW blocks. Every week I keep telling myself I should start but then every week I run out of time doing what was on my list.

Wow, I really like the way you are doing the sashing in that quilt.
That is great that you and your husband can share in the history of the quilt blocks.
