Antebellum Album plus a Finish

Wow...I can't believe we only have 2 more blocks for the Antebellum Album BOM.  I have to admit that this was not my favorite block to make.  Y seams make me crazy.

It's not perfect but it's done.  I have plans on redoing this block before I put the quilt together.

And I have a finish.  I made the top over a year ago and finally got it all quilted.

I made this quilt using my Accuquilt Go Cutter and my Half Hexagon die.  I used a bunch of browns that I wasn't really fond of just to use my new die.  Once I got the top put together I really loved it.  So now it's finished and it's mine all mine.  

I went to the eye doctor's yesterday to check if I did any damage to my eye when I fell.  My eye has been watering badly the few weeks.  Good news there is no damage.  Bad news I have extreme dry eyes and my allergies are causing problems.  So now I use "Refresh"  eye drops 4 times a day.  Drops for itching 2 times a day.  And an allergy prescription drop 3 times a day.   I need to write up a chart for what time to do the drops.  But at least there is no damage.

The weather has changed.  It's windy, cold, gray and cold.  I swear I saw some snow flakes the other day.  Good quilting weather.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great upcoming weekend.

Hugs, Cathy

Well, the block looks good to me. I run the other way when I see Y seams. :)
Your hexie quilt reminds me that I have a half hex template and have been intending to try it for a long time. I like what you have made. Maybe it will inspire me to dig mine out. :)
Glad you didn't damage your eye!!

I like the Antebellum block. You pieced it very well. I like the pinks in the block. Your hexie quilt has a very similar look. You did good.

I enjoyed seeing your Antebellum block I am not a fan of y seams either. Did you see on the Antebellum blog that someone had redesigned the block without the y seams. Mine is also finished so I won't be redoing it. I think yours looks great!

I'm glad there was no permanent damage to your eye. Are the drops helping?
