Judy is hosting another Design Wall Monday here. I have 4 projects on my wall today I have Feb First Sat blocks, Barbara Brackman’s civil war BOW blocks, Vicksburg appliqued border pieces and a couple of test blocks in green/blue.
Cotton Boll is the name of this weeks civil war block.
And speaking of Cotton Boll’s, I now have 301 of the half square triangles sewn and trimmed for RRCB….half way there, woo hoo!!!
Here are February’s First Saturday blocks from my LQS. I’ve gotten the most comments about these blocks. I think they will make a stunning quilt
I finally got Technicolor Yawn aka Scrap Vomit blocks together. You may remember this was a quilt-a-long from I’m a Ginger Monkey from October 2010. I already had a bunch of 2 1/2 inch squares cut thanks to starting Bonnie Hunter’s scrap users system and I ended up only having to cut the solid black & red and a few more lights. The top is approximately 99″ x 70″. I had toyed with the idea of adding borders but have since decided it looks good the way it is and I don’t want it any bigger.
We had a bit of excitement in our neighborhood on Saturday…….this fireman is standing in our neighbors yard. Can you see the bit of fire in the top right corner? The empty field behind our homes was on fire. This used to be a farm. The farm was bought and sewers (see the green pipe sticking up on the top left?) were put in but the housing collapse brought the development to a stand still. There had been some trash dumping but mainly it was just grass and weeds.
