More Blocks

On Monday night I had enough space cleared around the sewing machine to be able to sew up two more Civil War blocks:

"Railroad Crossing"

"North Star" - I love the pink/milky white Hunky Dory fabric
Last night was stitching group and I took along some completed pies to applique to their backgrounds - it takes as long to do this as it does to make a pie.  Sewed a couple more at home.

I have another 11 pies ready to applique - that will make 30, so soon I'll get around to sewing a row or two together.  In a good week at work I can stitch 5 or 6 pies - by "good" I mean that my lunchtime is uninterrupted.  I love making the pies and tarts.  I plan to make the quilt larger than the pattern suggests and have added quite a few fabrics from my stash.  Jenni has already claimed this quilt - I wonder if she realises what a long-term project this quilt is.

More sorting/tidying tonight and I may do some homework - our next Sylvia's Bridal Sampler block has been announced.

Terrible weather here at the moment - fierce winds, lots of rain etc.  Winter has definitely been here this July.

loving the pink, lucky she has made claim to your pie's and tarts as you have no where to hang it :)

You already know how much I love those blocks. I look forward to your Sylvia block, is it a hard one?

Be safe in that weather!!

Hello Lynda,

That middle pink fabric is beautiful. Good luck with making a pie each lunchtime.
Happy stitching and stay warm.
