Blocks, Blocks, Blocks

Hi friends,
after Christmas days I'll show you the blocks I have done during the last weeks. But first of all you need to give a look to the finished quilt top "Circle of Friends", done by members of the Civil War block of the week group in Flickr and sewed together, quilted and sent to Barbara Brackman by Becky Brown. You can read more about here and enjoy. My block is the right bottom corner one (Log Cabin).
Now to my blocks:
Civil War Block of the week
Block 51

Block 52
I'm working on the borders. Very soon I'll be ready to sew it together.
Quilt block swap Australia, 12" group, my block to Fiona:
 And Fiona's block to me. Another perfect one for my quilt.

Last pictures are from Quilt block swap Australia, 6" group, my blocks to Billy.
Wonderful goodies Billy sent to me with her blocks!!!
 And her lovely blocks.
Finished! Have a wonderful week. Hugs. Pink

November swap and Civil War Quilt

Hi friends,
today I got the new swap partners for December in the 6" group (this month I have two swaps) and the postman brought mail from the USA. Here are the lovely blocks Jen made for me. They are beautiful and go so well with my other blocks.
My Civil War block of the week is almost at his end, just two more Saturdays to go. Here are my last two blocks.
Very enjoyable blocks. Today I cut out all the pieces for the borders and for the last setting block. Tons of 1 1/2" and 2 7/8" blocks!!!
Have a good and creative week. Hugs. Pink

Civil War BOW and Blogger's BOM

Hi readers,
yesterday was BOM and BOW day!!! The new block for the Blogger's BOM was published here and this is my version:
And here the first three blocks together:
I really love how they look!!!!
Next the new weeks block for the Civil War BOW:
Block 48, can you believe it?? Here you can see a possible layout. I took pictures of all my 4 block sets, so i could move them around without loosing the blocks I already decided to have together and that I love as they are. Crazy?? 
I still need three more neutral blocks and probably will move some little block around. 
This afternoon we participate to the 110th anniversary of the lighthouse. isn't it beautiful?

We started looking at the book and no one was sewing that afternoon, we were to fascinated from all those beautiful little blocks.
