Here's my Crossroads blocks:
These blocks are easy and fun to do. I saw these on other blogs that are participating in the Rainbow Scrap challenge and loved them. The tutorial was on Connie's blog, Freemotion by the River, her tutorial is great. She gives you 3 different size blocks to make. Mine are 9" blocks but I plan on doing 12" blocks too. This one is going to be for me. I want to make the 12" blocks for communtity service quilts.
Saturday morning I was repairing a baby blanket for my granddaughter and wasn't paying attention. I got too close to the needle and sewed through my thumb. Boy, did that hurt. The needle broke but luckily it didn't break off in my thumb. That stopped my sewing for the day. I had to go to my grandson's soccer game anyway so I turned the machine off and doctored my thumb...
I came back later and started sewing my borders together for my Civil War quilt. I put the center together during the week and just had to get the borders on....I worked on it a little Saturday night and finished it up today after the kids left. My husband held it up but you can't really see the border on the bottom two pics so I did a closer view of the border in the third picture.
Here's the border. This quilt was a swap quilt all last year. We made 5 blocks each month, kept 1 and exchanged 4 of the blocks. I really like this quilt and think it will be wonderful all quilted up. This is number two of my Get It Done challenge finished for the month!
Now, it's time for bed. I hope you enjoy your week and get lots of sewing done. I also hope you didn't have to pay any money and you get lots of money back from the IRS so you can buy lots of fabric goodies! Happy Stitching!
