At Long Last.....



Ah, at long last..... I'm able to upload my last block of the CWBQ!  
I think the owls are so cute! 
The owls will appear again in the borders.  I'm happy how all the blocks work together and I got them all done!  Am designing the borders which will be similiar to the original quilt top.  I hope you all are enjoying the CWBQ journey as I am!

Almost there.....


This peacock hen block is my 19th block finished!  The little circles were a challenge, but got it done!  My 20th block is done as well but I'm having trouble uploading the image...will upload soon.  Keep stitching!

Another block...another row!

I really enjoy stitching the blocks of The Civil War Bride Quilt.  What I enjoy even more is stitching the blocks into rows!
This is the block I worked on this week.  First I stitched the beaks, stems, fruit and some leaves.

Then I added some branches and the birds!

Next, I added some tail feathers, feet and colourful combs.

And here are the first 2 rows stitched together!

Keep stitching,

Forgot to Publish ...

I realised I did not post since my block n°11 ,
 although I went further ...
 
Here are my blocks n°12, n°13 , n°14 !
 


 
The block n°15 is on the way ..
 
I still do not put them side by side, a little bit terrified by
the global effect .. I hope they all will fit together !

A Groom and a Peacock

Two blocks I finished last week.
The groom, who carries a pet lamb
and the peacock with embroidered crest
the end is in sight.....
