Antebelum Album and more

The final block is done.  All the blocks are sewn together and that is needed is to add the border.  

Here is my block 12.  I don't know why when I take a photo of these blocks the background looks pink.  It's not.  It is tea dyed muslin.  Oh well...  I will take a photo of the quilt top once I add the borders.  I did a different setting than the one suggested.  

It was a quilty Christmas in the Buel household.  Hubby did good.

He went to an estate sale and found this Signature quilt.

It is dated 1953.

He also found another quilt.

This is a pre-printed quilt.  Probably a Chinese made quilt.  But it is cute.  It has cat paw prints around the entire quilt.

Here is a close up.

I had mentioned to him that I really liked a quilt I saw in the Connecting Threads catalog.

I was quite surprised that he ordered the kit.  He also got me an eight pack of white, grays and black threads.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  We didn't have a white Christmas but it was nice.  We had a family get together with family.  It was good to see the grand kids.

Thanks for stopping bye.  I wish you all a very Happy New Year.

Hugs, Cathy

What a great hubby! I love all the quilts, but especially the signature quilt. We didn't have a white Christmas in Indiana either. Happy Winter sewing! I am most productive in winter it seems... No garden to deal with & more soup pot type meals equals more sewing time!

The Antebellum block looks good with the picture in the center. Good idea.
