I've some finishing details to do still--like trim out some fabric under-layers, add some very strong birdie talons and do embroidery for eyes...yes-- they are a proud pair of golden eagles!!

Here is a picture of the last block I worked on. Block #11 - the Robin. It's the 16th block that I've made. Since my CWB quilt has been in process for about 4 1/2 years, and helping raise my grandson is competing with completing it per the pattern, I've been weighing my options. I've decided to call it good, and start on the borders. The second picture is a possible layout for the 16 blocks. I'd love your feedback.
I can't believe it's been so long since I last posted a picture. I've been kind of distracted by the care of our baby grandson so my quilting has slowed down significantly this year. He is such a joy that I don't really mind though. I've only made a little bit of progress on my CWB quilt. It's motivating to see that there are still several who are working on their CWB quilt - hopefully it will help me keep at it too.

This post is about the labels....I used a product called C. Jenkins freezer paper sheets, 50 sheets 8.5 x 11" and used white cotton. I ironed the white fabric to freezer paper then trimmed each sheet precisely with rotary cutter. I scanned a picture from one of my books showing the Civil War Bride quilt along with a picture of the paper templates. I typed general information about this quilt I found in the book along with my thoughts about the quilt which is on another sheet. Last sheet I had problems getting it the way I wanted, label with my personal info. I finally just printed it out on copy paper full size picture of my quilt then laid my typed info onto this and then printed onto freezer paper. The color of my quilt is horrible and not anywhere near the true colors but I got so tired messing with it I just left it that way and printed it.
