monday design wall

it's a warm and rainy day in my neck of the woods today...great for sewing of course! sunday was a puttering type of day but did get started on my civil war project....


the next round is of hourglass blocks, which are in process...then another red border, then a wider border of more patchwork blocks....and was remiss in giving credit for the new england sampler quilt pattern....it is a brandywine design...


did get the pieces all basted down and rolled it up for traveling, so it's ready to go.  it'll be a convenient beach project but not this week--won't be up to 80 until next weekend.   it seems our moderate winter is continuing into moderate early summer.  so it's monday..let the sewing begin!

  3. At first I thought the CW block was a genuine 19th century hankie . . . guess not, LOL. The soft red/blue combination will be lovely. (I like the beachy header photo!)
