2 More Blocks

Here are my 2 latest blocks for the Love Letters quilt. I now have a total of 26! I think I will take a break for a few days on it. I love the quilt, but you know how it is sometimes, you just really need a change.

I think in a few days, I am going to order a few more fabrics for this quilt and my Diary quilt.

2 More Blocks!

Here are two more blocks to my Love Letters quilt! I really love these colors together, but by the time I finish 121 blocks I will probably hate them!!!!

These were both easy blocks and these make 8, I'm sure I will slow down alot when I get to the harder ones!!

6 More Blocks Today!

Lots of sewing here today!!!! This first block is for the Civil War Diary quilt. It is called "Union Soldiers" it has 39 pieces.
Then I got carried away on my Love Letters quilt. Actually, I hadn't planned on starting this quilt until Fall, but when I got my new fabrics yesterday, I just couldn't stand it. Yesterday I made one block and then today I made 5 more!!!
So on the Love Letters quilt I have 6 blocks!!!
I think I am really going to love this quilt in the browns and pinks!!! I need to purchase a ton more fabrics but I will get them little by little!

Well, I'm off, Hunter wants to work on his quilt for a while.

My First Love Letters Block!

I recieved my new fabrics in the mail today! I am so excited!!! I just love Civil War fabrics!!! Anyway I ordered these to add to my stash for both the Civil War Diary quilt and the Love Letters quilt.

After getting these fabrics today, I just couldn't stand it, I had to make at least one block for my Love Letter's quilt!!! So here it is...it is called..."Unnamed" one of the easy blocks! I am planning on doing the Love Letters quilt in Repro Pinks and Browns.
Well, I'm off to sew some more!!!

Here is another block that I finished over the weekend. It is called "Sorrow" row 2, block 1. It has a total of 43 pieces in it. It wasn't a hard block but they all seem to take alot of time for me.

I haven't worked on this quilt any today, but hopefully, after my nap, I will feel like starting on another block!

Independence Day Sewing!

Two more blocks so far today!!!! This first one is called "Everyday Chores" It has 25 pieces, not as many as some of them but still the pieces are small.

This one is called "A Union Of Name" It has 33 pieces and is from row 11, block 3.
These blocks make me 51 blocks so now I ONLY need 70 more to go! Almost halfway there!!!! Anyway, I plan on doing some more sewing tonight on them...

"Dark Gloom"

Here is my block for today! This one is called "Dark Gloom" It has 32 pieces in it. This makes 49 blocks. I have all eleven blocks in the first row done, so I cut all of the lattice strips and cornerstones so that I could sew the first row together!

I will post a photo of what I have done so far later, I have to stretch it out and take a photo of it. I have to say, I think this is going to be one of my favorites!!!! So....49 down and 72 more to go!!!

Well, this block is certainly named correctly "Anxieties" This little 6 inch block has a total of 65 pieces in it and wouldn't you know that I would sew it together WRONG! If you look close you can see that the bottom corner is backwards!!!!

But I will not be redoing this little bugger tonight! I am too tired to fool with it. Anyway this block makes me 48 of them! I would love to get all 121 of these blocks together before I start the Civil War Love Letters quilt in the Fall. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens...

Hungry Soldiers

This makes my second block tonight!!! I was going to wait until tomorrow to do it but I got rather bored. This one is called "Hungry Soldiers" it is from the first row and block number eight. This one wasn't hard but it did take a while longer since it has 40 pieces in it.

This block makes 47, I would love to hit 50 by the end of the week. Only 3 more blocks so maybe that won't be too bad.

Battle Of Springfield

Here is today's block! This one is called "Battle Of Springfield" It is from row 1 and block 7. A very simple block with only 29 pieces.
I have been just bouncing around on these blocks and I probably still will but I noticed that I almost have all of the blocks in the first row finished. I am really enjoying this quilt, I can't wait to get it finished. This block makes me 46 of them!!!
