Stitching a little
I got out the craft iron and starch to make the little berries for the 3rd January block above. While I had all the stuff out I made the circles for a February block as well. I used as many reds as I had.
I don't like sewing those pesky little diamonds in the corners but I sure like the way the blocks look together.
Below are all 3 of the January blocks from the 1857 quilt. (And my husband's childhood wooden soldiers)
My background seems so dark when I see other completed blocks in blogland. I still like the color I have chosen but I'm wondering if eventually I'll have to use sashing so the individual blocks will stand out.
Oh well, that's a decision for another day.
To celebrate Valentine's day I made some pink bread. Isn't it pretty? It's not flavored - it's just pink.
Have a great day,
