I finally got a chance to work on my Civil War Diary Quilt last night and a little bit today. I finished 3 blocks! So that makes 29 down and 92 more to go!!! I know I still have a long way to go, but I will get it finished someday!
Here is the block called...Alvin McClure
I paper pieced them all, actually I have paper pieced all 29 of them so far. I seem to be able to work better with the tiny pieces doing paper piecing. Hopefully, tonight I can get at least one more block to make an even 30.
Richard did not work today, he took the day off to get some things done. Actually, I think he was just tired when I tried to get him up at midnight and didn't want to go to work. I guess everyone deserves a day off now and then. He usually works 16-18 hours a day so I know he has to be tired. He worked some on the house today and got up all of the rafters on the backside. I will post a photo of it later.
I have a friend at my quilt guild that has started a blog. Her name is Brenda and if you get a chance check her blog out. She is a very nice lady and makes some very beautiful quilts. She also does machine quilting for others and does a wonderful job. I'm sure she would enjoy you all stopping by.
I'm off to clean up the kitchen and hopefully do a little more sewing.
