Scrappy Heaven

Christine1a Block2wbab

My Surprise parcel from Christine arrived. Lots of wonderful repro scraps- so many they would not fit in the photo. There was also the latest Fons and Porter Magazine with a great article on nine patches and a Pattern from Miss Rosies Pattern Co. called December Rose and some needles to try out. Love all the baskets in the quilt.  I can see some of these scraps making their way into my Civil War bride quilt. So much colour. I love it. :-)

I have finished the Civil War Bride Quilt Block 2 and am making good progress on block 5. Slowly but surely I am getting there :-) Off to fabric Fondle :-)

Cheers Lynne

I am in love with your CWB block 2. The fabrics and colors are so lively. Thank you for posting it. I've been casting about with mine trying to decide between pink and white flowers and now I am sure...I'm going with pink. Love it, love it, love it.

Every time I see one of the Civil War Bride quilt blocks, I wonder why I haven't started the quilt. I have the patterns. I just can't find the time right now. I am enjoying each block I see one of the participants working on.
