Happy with Civil War & Alternating Blocks

Oh Dear. I haven't posted in a week. Well, I wanted to, but I've just been busy moving files and working and SEWING! Yes! I've been doing my favorite thing. I'm so thrilled to have been able to spend large amounts of time sewing.
In fact, I've been sewing so much I ran that spool of thread empty before I knew what was happening. Happiness is an Empty Spool.  hehehe
As you know I sew in the dinning room.  As I started working on my alternating blocks I would just put them down with the Civil War blocks to see how they looked and to see how many more I need to make. 
It is a silly place to lay them out with that the chair is in the way.  
As you can see I have one lone CW block on the last row.  I wasn't sure just how many I wanted. Lucky for me I had printed out 4 more CW blocks to make just in case that happened.  
Last night I cut the fabric for the last of blocks.
I know some people don't enjoy cutting all that much, but I have a wonderful time. My daughter and I have started watching LOST on Netflix.  So between talking, drinking coffee, making waffles - yeah, making waffles at 8:00 at night, it took me about 2 hours to cut the blocks out. 

I'll be back soon with another progress report. 

Happy Stitching 


  1. That is one beautiful quilt! Love the chaining blocks.

  2. Ohh, Linda! That is going to be so beautiful. I've been having a blast sewing lots, too, and did the same thing with my spool the other day. lol Took me a second to figure out what happened. Can't wait to see the rest of your CW blocks take shape, they are great!

  3. I'm so glad you are getting some sewing time in. Nice! It's looking great. I like cutting sometimes, too. It can be relaxing. Glad you are having so much fun. I'm always laying my stuff out on the floor and navigating around furniture, too!

  4. Oh, that sounds like fun hanging out with your daughter! The quilt top is really coming along nicely. I like it!

  5. Your quilt is going to be awesome!

  6. That is so lovely - your blocks are just wonderful! Oh how I loved Lost, right up to the final episode, lol. Enjoy!!!

  7. just lovely!!!!! if it would ever cool down here in so cal maybe I would get motivated to sew!!!!!!!
