Sewing Progress

Phew! I've been working on block 7 of The Civil War Tribute Quilt from Homestead Hearth. It's a very pretty block, but a bit challenging. It took lots of concentration (and a little frog stitching), but I'm very happy with the results. Now I only to make seven more just like it! What?



This morning I made a new clothespin bag. Jim's been asking me to make one for months. LOL I used this cute clothespin fabric from the repro section and lined it with bleached muslin. Hope it will last a tad longer than the dollar store one it replaces.



Finally, here are pillowcases I finished for Abby and Ian. Kari and Abby chose the fabrics from The Quilted Cottage when they were here for my niece's wedding on the 18th. They went in the mail today.
