A Little of Everything

Siggies received last week from Sally in Texas...a different one for each of us much work in these sweet flowers

And Tom's ....deep in the heart of Texas!

How cool is it that Sally Brown lives in Brownwood.  I'll have to ask if it is named after her family.

This week's block for Chery's 1880 Sampler BOW..Pine Tree

And this week's block for Barbara Brackman's Civil War BOW--Lousiana

Don't forget to check out the history lesson on her blog that goes along with this block.

Yesterday was National Quilting Day and several guild members gathered to work on various projects.  I spent the day sewing string blocks for community quilts.  I hoped to make a dent in the tub of little scraps and second tub of batting squares, but I don't think either one looks any smaller.  This is what I got done..7 inch blocks and 6 inch blocks.  Hope you did something fun for NQD as well.

I hope to get enough "remedial" work done on UFOs this year to get into siggie exchanging. I just love them. :D

Your blocks look great. I worked on a spring mantel piece on NQD.

The blocks are pretty Mary. I love how you made the stripe on the pinwheel block go straight across. A nice effect.
