Antebellum Album Block 8

I finished block 8 today.  I am so happy with this sew along.

I had a scrap of fabric with some Civil War motifs on it and used it for the center.  My husband is a big civil war buff and is loving this BOM as much as I am.

I got my Walnut Grove quilt top sewn together.

Here it is on my bed (a full mattress).  

This is a close up of some of the blocks.

Now I'm working on the next block I have prepped for my red and green quilt while enjoying some cooler weather.  At least for a

Dearest Boy

It's that time again.  Time to reveal the next block of the Dearest Boy sew along.

Here are blocks 2 C and D.  I'm doing a simpler version of the blocks.  I'm working on so many different projects.  I just have time to keep it simple.

It has finally started to cool down.  The forecast is temps in the 70's.

Be sure to check out Karen'sJulie'sCarole's and Doreen's blogs to see what they have been up to.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.

Slow Sewing

I finished up this months blocks for the Land of Liberty quilt along.  I have all the pieces cut for the Freedom Angel and will applique them later.

I was checking all my project boxes and came across the box containing all the blocks for my Walnut Grove quilt.  I pulled out all the blocks and put together the first 5 rows.

Today I plan on sewing these rows together and try and get the next 5 rows done.  This quilt is going to be 80" x 90".  I'm glad I have air conditioning in my sewing room because it is going to be hot and humid today.  It's going to be even hotter tomorrow.  Good time to get some sewing done.

Thanks for stopping by and stay cool.

One Down

Many more to come.  Projects that is.  

I finally finished Part 7 of Land of Liberty.  Just in time for the next installment.

Although I enjoyed my vacation it really put me behind on my projects.

We finally got a break on the weather.  I got to open the windows and get some fresh air going through the house.

I hope you are enjoying your summer.

Hugs, Cathy
