I had a busy but productive weekend and it's about time because the fair is 11 days away!
We are decorating the front room of the historical building in a Civil War theme this year. There were at least 2 ladies groups that made supplies for the soldiers - socks, quilts, bandages, etc. I am trying to get as many of my CW blocks sashed so that we can use that as part of the display. If I get that missing middle block done, I can finish these 3 rows - they are just missing 1 block on the right of each row and no one will know unless you are 1 of my 8 followers or 18 google readers :) You might also notice I have 2 more Floribunda/Jacob's ladder blocks done as I am using them as leader/enders.
I also pieced the back for my fireman quilt and mostly have the whole thing spray basted. The back is 3 rows of red, white and blue. Now I can start on the quilting which won't be too hard. I'll use RWB thread to stitch 1/4 inch from all the diagonal seams in the arrowhead blocks and then outline all the men with free motion quilting in brown. I will probably leave that 1" black border plain after a simple black SITD around both sides. Wish me luck!
