Blocks, blocks and blocks



The bloke is back on his feet, I hope he takes it easy. He is a bit of a rakoholic. Maybe I could hire him out to rake for other people.
I've been making blocks for  Bee Balm member, Kate this week. She asked for HS triangles which put me under just a little pressure but I did enjoy the challenge. The first one was  a mismatched disaster but I think the second effort is worth mailing. I hope she likes my attempt and the fabrics I chose. Kate loves Civil War fabrics and although I don't have any in my stash I do have some that will blend.

In my spare time I'm puddling along with my
"All About the Town" blocks.  I'm having lots of fun with this.
It's a great pattern by Sue Garman and I've been admiring  the quilt made by Teresa at Fabric Therapy. Finally I got myself organised to give it a go.
