Liberty fabrics

Hi friends,
today I was a very lucky girl, the postman was here and I got my parcel from the UK with lovely Liberty fabrics. Look how beautiful they are.

I don't know yet what I will do with them, I could use them for the new Barbara Brackman BOW. I probably will need more fabrics. I love new fabrics!!!

During our daily walk at Sete Cidades i picked up some lovely flowers for my home. This time i chose all in white, Hydrangeas and Agapantus.
Soft and sweet :)
Have a nice week-end. Hugs.

Civil War Block of the Week

Hi friends,
finally my Civil War BOW is completed!! Today I added the border and this is the result

Each block is 4 1/2", for a total of 100 blocks. It was great fun waiting for Saturdays, discover the new block, reduce it and try to sew it well. I'm very happy with the result. Now I just need a lovely backing fabric (probably I'll have a look at Zara) and start with the quilting. I still have to make up my decision if handquilt or machinequilt. What do you suggest?
Thanks for visiting and hugs.

Bloggers BOM

Hi friends,
Saturday it was a rainy day, so after I did my chores (lot of dishes, because Friday we had lovely friends for dinner), I decided that it was time to reuse my sewing machine. I had two blocks to catch up for the Bloggers' BOM. Here they are
Block 8

Block 9

My blocks so far
9 blocks so far, only 3 more to go, that's good because I'm running out of green and yellow fabrics.
Hope to have enough to finish the blocks.
Have a lovely Sunday. Hugs.
