Row 1 is Done!

One week and row one of Dutch Treat #3 is done!

 Yesterday and today I finished three more blocks.
Border Crossing

Blue Bells

This afternoon I sewed the first 14 blocks together to make row one.  This time I'm going to sew my rows vertically to get better control over the long vertical sashing and keeping it straight.  I'm using the dark brown fabric I initially bought thinking it might be the foreground fabric.  This one is going to be so much fun!

 I also made a big pot of bean and ham soup this afternoon along with a couple loaves of NY rye bread and some nutty spice cookies.

Yum..time to go eat!

I've been thinking of ham soup too (I'll buy the bread though LOL).

The blocks are gorgeous and I wish I were coming to supper - that's my favorite kind of food.
