I'm still plugging along on the Sweet Land of Liberty BOM. I wish I could just go ahead and finish it already. I'm gonna try calling Homestead hearth to see what the possibility is of them sending me the last few months ahead of time. Couldn't hurt to ask right? I could do them myself, but I'm paying for the fabric and there will be a lot of fabric in the next few packages. Doesn't mean I can't use it other things too. We'll see.
So these are the blocks I got done for the month. Because the blocks couldn't be completed without having them attached, I went ahead and joined them. In order to do that I needed the red and white stripes to be sewn in place. No biggie...that was pretty simple.
That just about finishes the center of the quilt. one small block and one with oak leaves and the center will be done...on to the borders!
I've been saving the ABC Sampler for later but I just got the 3rd month and I can't wait anymore! I started the first block. It will take a while since I have tons of hand projects at the moment, but it will get done soon.
This is the wool I got yesterday. All the colors I needed to finish the Nativity quilt. the picture doesn't show it well but the top light fabric is really a pale peach skin tons that works perfectly for faces, hands and feet. It sure was nice to dive into baskets and see it up close in person!
