Block 5 of Civil War Bride Finished!

The sun was shining and it was a very productive day!  I stitched the last leaf on the 5th block of Civil War Bride Quilt.

And  the top row is now complete!

Since my sewing machine was on the dining room table anyway, I stitched Aunt Eliza’s Star from Barbara Brackman’s Grandmother’s Choice.  Even if you are not making the blocks, the stories that go with these blocks are very inspiring and moving and worth reading.

I went to go visit my quilt today!

Colleen, from Elite Quilting, is basting “Bouquets For a New Day” together for me on her long arm machine.  That will save me from spending a couple of hours on my hands and knees basting it by hand.  Life is good!!  Lucky for me, Colleen was just finishing up as I arrived, so now the hand-quilting can begin!

Til next time…..
