todays' blocks...

Finally got the pre-cut blocks sewn up...now to cut more!

From l to r...

Parlor Activity, pg 101D & Mrs. Massie's Party, pg 139LL

These blocks were so fun and the old rules for cutting really do work...add 7/8" when cutting hst's and 1.25" when cutting qst's. I cut the pieces for Mrs. Massie's Party so the edges would be on the straight of grain and sturdy.

l to r....

My Greatest Trail, pg 189 LL & Soldier's Box, pg 199D

Very cool blocks too. I'm changing some colors around because I realized I am heavy on pink, red, & greens. I'm following along with the books but I think I ended up loving mostly pink and green blocks... therefore...yellow and purple!

I really am enjoying seeing all of the civil war blocks :0). Your Easter wall hanging is just perfect and so are the 30's strings. What fun projects you've been working on!
