Foragers

It's November 12, 2009

I opened my Civil War Diary Quilt book and wondered how I'm going to sew this Foragers block...

I decided to cut my fabrics this way:

out of green and red (green = R. Nannemann's Itsy Bits, red =one of the J. Rothermel's reproductions? - two 8,5 x 8,5 cm squares (I cut them diagonally twice, so I got 8 triangles) and four 6 x 6 cm squares, which I cut diagonally once

out of cream (I don't know the range or even manufacturer)
- two 7 x 7 cm squares, which I cut diagonally twice (I got 8 triangles)

By the way if you click on the picture, you can read the note from the CWD book written by R. Youngs and the note is written by Eldress Nancy Elly Moore.

After cutting those pieces there was a really exciting moments ahead. Is my block finally 6 1/2" x 6 1/2"?


So far it's loo
king quite good;))))

Let's piecing more...
I can't belive this, it's still looking good...




Here is Block 22. Foragers

I'm pleased that I didn't use paper piecing this time. After all it was quite easy and quick to make. And I was lucky that measurements were right...

After this kind of success it's more fun to wait the next CWD block...

THE day is or more exactly the days are Nov. 18-20. Oh, it's already on the next week...

See you ... not later than November 20

One question, do you really mean cm in your cutting instructions?

Wow! That block looks just perfect! Love it!
I'm hoping to get on with my blue DJ soon, just have to get the Christmas projects done, then I've decided to get some of the blocks done. Look forward to that
Hope to get to do these CW blocks too sometime in the future, but first things first ;o)
Have a great weekend :o)
