Today's Blocks!

I finally got back to working on my Civil War Diary quilt. Today I finished two more blocks. This first one is called, "Alarming Conditions" it is the first block in the first row. For some reason this block gave me fits. It took me about 2 hours to do it. Sometimes the easiest blocks just don't go together the way you want. This is the first block in this quilt that I have had problems with, but it was just me.

This block is called "Conscript Laws" first row, third block. This one went together very easy! I love this quilt!
By chance if anyone runs on to my blog here, I do have another blog that I post daily on. It has all of my quilting and family adventures on it. It is called Quilting Cowgirl!

2 More Blocks!

Tonight I have made two more blocks for my quilt. This now takes my total up to 43! I had not worked on this quilt for a month, I can't believe it had been that long. I would like to get at least 2 more finished before the end of this month. Only 6 more days and I have alot of company coming this weekend for Hunter's birthday party, so hopefully I can squeeze two more blocks in.

Anyway, this first block is called "Gloomy Prospects" from Row 2, block 2.

This one is called "Robbers" from row 3, block 4.
Now I'm off to clean up my mess...
