Tuesday Finishes

I finished up block number 4 for the “War & Pieces” from the old pattern by Barbara Brackman and Karla Carney Menaugh. This one is the Federal Eagle block. Here is an excerpt from the pattern explaining the block. “This patriotic block with it federal eagle and pair of Union flags represent the fervor that swept across the country when the war began in April, 1861.”


When I was doing the shield I decided to use iron on stabilizer and I was not really paying attention and ironed it to the wrong side. So I had to go through my fabric stash and find similar fabrics. I only had the red and had to replace the other two as you can see.


I also started the last block for my “Friends for Christmas” quilt by Lynette Anderson.


I hope I can finish the block and get the quilt pieced soon. I had ordered this as a block of the month from Homespun Hearth years ago and the fabrics they chose are awesome.  Here is the quilt in case you forgot what it looked like.


Here are three bunnies that are going on my selling blog tonight. These two are variations of a pattern/class I made/taught when I worked at the quilt store years ago.


This one I adapted from a older pattern by Soft in the Head.


Here are all three – Please ignore the dust bunnies – they were fighting to get into the picture also.


Off to cook dinner. Have a great week and don’t forget to find a little stitching time!




Your work is beautiful, Isn't it funny you don't see those dust bunnies until you take a picture or someone is over and all of a sudden there they are.

Those Americana blocks turned out great! When you show the quilts your working on, it makes me wanna' stop what I'm doing and make a quilt!
