design wall monday 1-25-10



More blocks from the book "The Civil War Love Letter Quilt". I will wait to make more until after Tuesday when Miss Nancy and I head back to Raspberry Patch to load up fill in our stash. I need some yellows, lights and maybe greens and purples. I am not very well versed in the Civil War Reproduction fabrics, so not quite sure what is out there.

The block names are (from left, first row) Enthusiasm, A Secession Ball, Healthful Region, March in the Mountains and (from left, second row) Sorrows of War, Liberal with Furlough and Severe Fighting.

I haven't started reading the letters that accompany the blocks. I am told that the letters and the blocks have no significance together, but that the author just picked blocks to go with the letters...

Hubby is working furiously on his piece of furniture. No photo, but the back is on and the shelves are in. He will start working on the drawers next.

Want to see more Design Wall Monday? Head over to Judy's and check out the list...and read about her chickens....

Happy 4th Birthday to my little Ava.... She is getting to be such a big girl....

I love the Civil War era and I really like your blocks. I think my favorite one is the pinwheel. Ever been to The Quilt Sampler in Springfield? If you're ever this way, you should stop in. The store is fantastic . I have been shoppin there ever since they opened their doors. Little Ava is just a doll!!

Your granddaughter is a doll! A girl in our church is also named Ava and her birthday is this week, too. (She is older than your Ava, though.)

Miss Nancy said...

Well done, Good work!! They are wonderful. Ava is adorable.

Have a great day. See you tomorrow.

Your family is beautiful and Ava is darling. Your blocks look beautiful too, but pale in comparison to Ava! Congrats.
