Block 6

Good Morning.  It's gray outside, cold outside, and snowy outside.  It's about 12 degrees out and we got around 3" of snow.  Ugh...

Today Karen and I reveal the next block in our Early American Life sew along.

Mine looks backwards compared to the photo of the quilt.  Originally this was suppose to be a fusible applique quilt.  Karen and I are doing needle turn applique.

We will be posting our next block on the 15th of February.

Thanks for stopping by.  Stay warm.

Hugs, Cathy

Land of Liberty Part 1

I'm so happy to be participating in Lori's sew along of Cheri Payne's quilt "Land of Liberty".  Here is my version of part 1.

It took me a while to get this done but I am so happy with it.

I've had to cut back on projects I wanted to do because of my Bells Palsy.  I am continuing to get better every day.  My right eye still waters and I am unable to sew or do applique for long periods of time.  I still have trouble pronouncing certain words.  P's and B's give me the most trouble.  I still have an issue when eating, but that too is improving.  But I'm getting there.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

Early American Life Block 5

We are starting a new row for our quilt.

This is the corn flower block.  I think it is my favorite so far.  The yellow parts are suppose to be individual pieces.  I chose to make them different.  I think the fabric I chose makes it look like corn.

Check out Karen's blog.  She does such beautiful applique.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy
