Yesterday I worked a little on my Dear Jane and then last night I worked on my Civil War Diary Quilt. I love this quilt and find the paper piecing quite fun! They are small blocks, only 6 inches but seem quite large after working on the Dear Jane blocks.
This first block is called Gloomy Prospects.
This is "Robbers"
These two blocks make me a total of 43 blocks! 43 down and 78 more to go!!!!! I love the Civil War fabrics that I am doing these quilts in. The Civil War Diary quilt, Dear Jane and soon the Civil War Love Letters quilt will also be done in Civil War Repro fabrics. I am thinking that when I start the Love Letters quilt I will do it in repro browns and pinks...maybe. I found a wonderful website that sells tons of reproduction fabrics and at really good prices. It is called Quiltbook.com I have put my order in for several pieces.
Since Hunters birthday party is this weekend and I sew at my dining table, I will have to put my machine and stuff up for a few days. He will be having a friend stay over Saturday night so my plan is to get a few of the applique Dear Jane blocks ready to do. That way I can sit around with the family and also do some handwork. A few blocks won't be too messy.
