Quilt Blocks

7 Sep

Good morning! So what are your plans today? It’s a rainy day here so my plan is to get some sewing done. There is something that I just have to show you and that is all these 12 blocks that I won at the quilting guild meeting last night. What is so exciting is you can make a quilt out of the 12 blocks! The funny part about winning is that I hardly ever win anything much but guess there is always a first time for everything.

As I have said before our quilt guild is working on blocks that have to do with the Civil War. This particular block is called “Gentlemen Fancy.” If you google: Barbara Beckman Civil War Quilt Blocks, you will find the different blocks along with the history behind each block.

Have a great day! See ya next time!

Your Friend,

    My plans today? Finish a quilt top (not much more to do), clean house (friend coming for lunch tomorrow) and play with the blocks on my design wall!
