CWD: Southern Flags and Patriotism

Kesäisen keväistä sunnuntaita!

 En tiedä, olivatko nämä orvokit syynä / inspiraationa valitessani kankaita seuraavaan Civil War Diary blokkiin... voi olla!

The next CWD block was an easy one! There is only strips and a 3" sawtooth star.

I cut the following pieces to make this block:

for the star 
- one plum red 2" x 2" square
- four white 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" squares
- one white 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" square for flying geese
- four pink 1 5/8" x 1 5/8" squares for flying geese

for the striped units
- three plum red 1" x 3 1/2" strips
- three pink 1" x 3 1/2" strips
- three plum red 1" x 6 1/2" strips
three pink 1" x 6 1/2" strips



This block is the last block, which was attached to Mrs. Hannah Sanders' diary entries. So today I'll say "sort of goodbyes" to her...

She was 55 years old at the beginning of the Civil War (1861), and she wrote in her diary every day. Her diary entries were short, simple sentences with references to the weather, her family, visitors, daily activities and historical events. (quote from The Civil Diary Quilt written by R. Youngs)

The CWD blocks of "her" were:

29. Remembrances - sewed 1.1.2010
30. Troops Arriving - sewed 5.6.2011
31. Beginning of War - sewed 16.4.2009
32. Church - sewed 27.1.2010
33. Sewing - sewed 10.5.2009
34. Southern Flags and Patriotism - sewed today, 27.5.2014
35. Mail Delivery - sewed 21.2.2010
36. Gardening - sewed 18.5.2009
If you click the link, you'll find my blog entries of the blocks!

OMG! the oldest entries are five years old... but I didn't sew any CWD blocks in 2012...

When I read the old postings I saw there quite young kitty...

in May 2009 Fenix was sooo tiny (3 months old), but the ironing board was his favorite place already then;o)

We wish You All a Sunny Week!

PS. The next CWD day is May 10th.

Looks like Fenix knew exactly where to nap. Good for you to keep up with the CWD blocks. Before you know it, it will be a complete top.

Synnynnäisesti ompeluun orientoitunut kissa :)

Ennen sinun blogiasi en edes tiennyt näistä kaikista samplereistä joita niin hienosti esittelet! Mielenkiintoisia ovat, mutta DJ on kesken :)

Kaunis tähtisilmä blokissa ihan niin kuin orvokeissasi ja värithän täsmäävät täysin. Onpa se Fenix ollut joskus pieni.

Nämä blokit ovat mielenkiintoisia ja kiva kun kerrot niistä ja niiden historiasta. Kauniit värit blokissa ja hyvin sointuu orvokin väriin. Oih, kun Fenix söpöltä!

It's fun to look back. Fenix is adorable both as a kiiten and a full grown cat!
