A little bit of stitching....


Yankee Puzzle

Just a little quilt, it only measures 13", but it makes a great candle mat.  This was a pattern from Jo Morton a few years ago, it was included in one of the Jo's Little Women clubs.  I decided I needed a few blue quilts for January decorating and I had purchased several fat quarters of the Indigo Berries line, one of my favorites!   Then, I cut out this little quilt from a previous JM Little Women club...Soldier Blue.  It is ready to layer and quilt.



And I got my North Star made for Barbara Brackman's Civil War blocks.  If you have not checked out her website, just click on the link on my sidebar.   She is hosting a year long BOM dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.  Great way to use the reproduction fabrics that we have been collecting!

The weather forcasters are telling us that snow is on its way...woo hoo! 
 I look at snow days as sew days!

Love you two little quilts. I love anything Jo Morton does.
Your second BB block is looking good. I like that you have used another colour for the background( Yellow). I always feel I staying safe buy using a light.

Thanks for your sweet comment and for visiting my blog! I'm so grateful to Madame Samm for my Blog rescue! It pays to be Bad at something I suppose...at least in this case it did! I hope I can spend more time quilting now rather than fighting with my blog. Hope you'll come back and see my new projects for 2011. I love your Word, Content, for the year! Mine is Hope.
Blessings

I love your little quilts with the gorgeous blues! Indigo is my favorite color. Very inspiring! Jo's designs are always so pretty.

I'm trying the Civil War blocks too, but don't know if I'll keep up with it - I already have too much on my plate, and I hate that "perpetually behind" feeling.
