I just finished the strawberry block this afternoon. The little strawberry tops are made of wool, no tiny points to needle turn that way. I also had some time last week to make bias stems and these:
are my last three blocks all prepped and ready to start. Can you tell which blocks I have left to do just looking at the bias stems?
This Christmas weekend is a little Civil War Bride Quilt anniversary for me. Last year at this time I found this blog and in January I ordered the pattern and some starter civil war fabrics from Corliss at Threadbear Quilting. It has been a joy stitching these blocks and sharing the progress of my bride quilt, and seeing all of the other blocks finished and posted to this blog. I also started my own little blog inspired by all the wonderful blogs I read from the quilters here. It is a high point of my day, some times first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee, some times at the end of a long work day and finally settled down on my couch with notebook computer in my lap, to browse thru your blogs. I have enjoyed reading about your lives and homes all over the world and about your love of quilting.
Thank You Lizzie for starting this blog!
