Civil War Bride block




A little progress, one more block for my CWB quilt, I finished last night,
by laying them out together the thought passed my mind that I could stop now, nine blocks and it is not to big for any wall.
But then I decided - I will do them all, just one at a time.




Sweet Nostalgia 


Started a new top, this one is stitched and my first block July, 
is called "Fun at the Beach".
The pattern was a free Block of the Month from Dorothy Baker Designs some years ago. You can see a picture of the quilt  here

New books

I purchased three books, one is Masters Art Quilt,  it was published 2008 so it is not quite new but there are over 400 pages of beautiful pictures of art quilts from all over the world.
The second one is Wildflowers, designs for appliqué and quilting by Carol Armstrong, I thought I might need it when finish my Flower Garden. 
The third one is Jelly Roll and charm quilts, if one day I  buy a Jelly Roll.

Until next time - happy stitching
and thank you for stopping by.

Another beautiful CWB block and how nice they all look together. I'm glad you decided to continue making them. And, your first Sweet Nostaliga block, very sweet! I like the background fabric. Oh, and some lovely books! I have the Masters book and a couple of different Carol Armstrong books. Wildflowers and your flower garden, I like the sounds of that!
