First April DWM

You can see what other quilts have on their design walls by checking out Judy’s DWM post.  My wall hasn’t changed since last week:

I did accomplish a few sewing related things however.  I got the pinwheel parts for the 5th Pinwheel Party block,

added the rest of the cherries and started the leaves on the 5th Vicksburg block

and bought a new book that is fabulous…..oh, and bought a couple of Fox Tails 😉

Vicksburg Blocks

I’m still working on the Vicksburg Free BOM…..I know, I know, they haven’t made even a mention lately.  I selected the fabrics for the pieced blocks (block #3) last night.   I really like the red fabric I picked for the star points….notice I took care to have the design going in the same direction 🙂 I have blocks 1, 2 & 4 completed and have block 5 already to applique but Dawn at Linen Closet Quilts has posted block 7 already!

I finished sewing the blocks and sashing on the Foxy Fassett quilt last night as well.  It has it’s own name now….the frog quilt, lol.  I’ll have to get a picture to show you why 😉



Vicksburg #3

I finished the 4th Vicksburg BOM from Linen Closet Quilts.   The pattern has circles on top of the ribbons but both I and DH prefer the block without the circles so it’s done 🙂  I haven’t completed the 3rd BOM, which are pieced blocks, and now the 5th BOM is out!  It’s a really cute block but has lots of pieces.

Here are my other two blocks and I’m still not sure about the fabric I used for the flowers…….hey there’s the green fabric that lurked so long on my design wall 😉
