May Monday

We are having some wonderful weather here in St Louis.  Absolutely gorgeous.  This week, I have a few new blocks on my design wall, including including blocks for a new leader/ender project 😉  Be sure to check out Judy’s DWM post here.

I finished up the alternate First Saturday block.

I made “Grapes of Wrath“, block number 50 of Barbara Brackman’s civil war BOW from 2011.  Since I’ve decided to use the medallion setting and only need the original 53 blocks, I only have 5 more blocks to finish, yea!!!

Lastly, I’ve been sewing these 9 patches as my leader/enders with an eye to making some Hot Crossed 9-Patches inspired by the Block Lotto April 2012 block.  I’m using reclaimed shirt fabric but haven’t decided what fabric to use for the “cross” part.  I’ll be sewing the frame pieces leader/ender as well 🙂

 Happy Quilting, Cherie

  1. Your design wall is a lot more full than mine! I like your civil war blocks and a good leader/ender block too. Good going on getting the net figure down lower. 🙂
