More Civil War Blocks

The civil war blocks were calling to me last night so I put my Baby Dear Jane aside to work on the blocks. With the completion of these four little blocks I have now completed the blocks from Week 1 as well as two from Week 3. I have not decided whether I also want to piece the Love Letters blocks. I have the book and the CD .... I keep thinking this project would be more manageable if I only attempted to piece blocks from one book. Then I think "hmmm once I complete the civil war blocks and put them into a quilt, would I really go back and piece the Love Letters blocks to make a second quilt? Probably not." Tomorrow night I will cut the fabric for a few more blocks so I can piece them on Saturday. Saturday is Sew Day at the firehouse. Several hours of sewing, chatting and eating without any members of the male species. It is supposed to rain on Saturday -- what better way to spend a rainy Saturday than sewing and catching up with a few quilting buddies?

I agree - nothing nicer to do when it's raining then sit and sew. Your blocks look lovely - especially the brown and blue. Lily
