Couldn't Resist!

How could I possible not join in the Civil War Quilt block a week being offered by Barbara Brackman on her new Blog ? Even if you are not a fan of Reproduction fabrics, I am sure it will make a lovely sampler quilt - me, well it's no surprise to hear that I'll be sticking with the original theme:-)

Block 1 - Catch Me If You Can







I've just realised that I didn't post a photo of my last finished  for 2010



My Half Hexagons -  I finally finished the binding just before Christmas! My excuse for taking so long with the hand stitching is that I did get a bit sidetracked during the build up to the holiday with bits and bobs for the grandchildren and what seemed like endless stockings to sell at my Cat Charity Christmas Fayre - but done it is now !

They are both very beautiful! Love those hexagons! I also like your Civil War block, I have the fabrics pulled to make it but haven't gotten to it yet! Hopefully I will get it finished before the weekend.

Lovely project. I will go check out Barbara Brackman's blog right now.

Thanks for your comment on my article in Quilter's World. I forwarded it to the editor. :)

The quilt is just great - just the thing for a cold winter afternoon.

There's a timeless charm about a hexagon quilt. I just don't like making them. Lovely pix of Britanny.

My blog is mostly poetry, but if you click on the quilts category youll find some pictures.
