Dearest Boy Block 1 C

Another slightly difficult block...but I love it.



I had been working on my Antebellum Album quilt so I had a lot of fabrics pulled for it.  I thought these fabrics would work well on this block.

Be sure to stop by and see Karen and Julie's blocks.

I want to thank everyone for their kind words about the loss of my father-in-law.  Your thoughts and prayers have been appreciated.

A week from today my grandson is getting married.  It will be a wonderful celebration.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

Slow Sewing

A few projects to share.

Antebellum Album Block 5.


I'm using a tea dyed muslin for the background on all my blocks.  


Next up is Month 6 of the Land of Liberty quilt sew along hosted by Lori of Humble Quilts.  She gives so much insightful information which is helpful to both people who have the pattern and those that don't.





Lately I've been prepping blocks for Dearest Boy and my Red and Green quilt.


It's been a couple of hard months here.  First we lost my husband's mother.  It was totally unexpected.  His father was struggling with Alzheimer's and mobility issues.  My husband and his brother finally got Dad in a nursing home.  He wasn't doing well and appeared to have given up.  He missed Mom.  Last week on Monday he passed away.  We miss them both very much.  

Thank you for stopping by.  Your comments are appreciated.

Hugs, Cathy
