Wow! Has it actually been since April when I posted my last block of the month? Yes, I was three months behind on these. I spent part of yesterday catching up since I will be receiving block 11 in about 2 weeks. So here they are, in chronological order:
|Block Eight – Flora Cooke Stuart, wife of General J.E.B. Stuart (CSA)|
|Block Nine – Maria Louise (Garland) Longstreet, wife of General James Longstreet (CSA)|
|Block Ten – Frances Caroline ‘Fanny’ Chamberlain, wife of General Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain (US)|
Now that I caught up on my BOM, I don’t feel guilty starting another quilt project. It is difficult to find non-girly fabrics, but I scored this line at my local quilt store. It is called VeloCity by Jessica Hogarth for P & B Textiles. To make it even better, the store was having a 30% off entire purchase sale. I need more masculine fabrics to make a crib quilt for my daughter’s friend who is having a baby boy in a couple months and it is nice to have the fabric on hand because I also have three grandsons.
I’m heading to Hancock Fabrics tomorrow to search out a great fall jacket pattern. I will also peruse my back issues of BurdaStyle magazine. I’m anxious to get started on some fall garment sewing. Do you have plans for any quilts or fall wardrobe pieces?
