Sewing


Today we'll meet Hannah Walton Sanders again. Last time we read her notes was nearly a month ago. April 10, 1861 she wrote in her diary:

At Richards. Raining of course, but did not rain much. Lizzie helping me make Adams some clothes. Cousin Caroline helping. Brenton and A.K. Fulton home for supper. Told us of William Rapers starting to join the Grays. Posey and Nannie there also. (quote from Civil War Diary Quilt book by R. Youngs)
Hannah and her husband William lived on the farm called the Jackson Ferry Farm. William was part-owner of the area mines, but also worked on the farm trimming grapevines, planting vegetables and so on. Hannah kept busy cleaning house, working in the garden and on her loom. And her home seemed to be full of constant relatives and friends. That's like my mom's home today, when we were celebrating Mother's Day.

Because I was at work this forenoon, I started to sew this CWD block (33. Sewing) already yesterday. I sewed 16 quick-pieced triangle-squares together, so today there was only 8 triangles left. Those squares of the center are only 3/4" - so there was little tension in the air... What will happen...???



The result is not perfect, but it's ok for me...

I'm sewing Civil War Diary Quilt together Elin. Please, remember to visit at her blog. There you'll see her latest block... They are beautiful!!! She uses her Civil War fabrics with skill.

My fabrics are: green Kaye England's In the Manor, mustard The Cover Story from Thimbleberries (RJR Fabrics) and dark and light green are both from Quilt Gate's Mary Rose Collection.

Next time I'll tell you a terrible story about Alvin McClure... and the date is April 16...

Last week (should I say finally) I got Jennifer Chiaverini's latest pattern book... so the journey with SBS continues...
This week BOW is or exactly was A7 Cats and Mice. I didn't have time to sew it, but maybe soon.
All evenings were full of building a climbing tree for our kitten.

Anyway the fabrics are waiting...


Five days and then SUMMER... HO...HO...holiday;))))

HAPPY WEEK to YOU!!!

I see more than one Dear Jane quilt on your sidebar. Are you making two at the same time?

You are so clever! Well, I know that mine should be mirrored, but who cares?
Alvin McClure is already done, so I may have a little break, or what?

It is a lovely block! You have done a wonderful job!

So you finally got your SBS book :o) Cats and Mice is a fun block to sew - I did it for the blue and white swap - and you'll be able to do it in between other blocks. I look forward to seeing your name on the list of BOW sewers again - I have picked the blocks for June, so I want to see them stitched up in your fabric choice :o) Btw. I know Debbie is looking for someone to pick BOW blocks for summer/autumn - perhaps you would be interested?

Hope you're having a great Sunday!
Hugs and stitches

I just love those blocks you're working on! The fabrics you've used are so beautiful. Do you use a special fabric line? Love it!
