Civil War Sampler

I really want to get back at working on my dear Jane. I first thought I had to get this civil war sampler out of the way. I started doing a few blocks with some online blogs to see if I liked them and if I wanted to invest in a few of the books. I side tracked to using blocks that were in EQ then altering them a little. And then when I was down to the last 4-5 I just sewed up the left over squares and triangles together just to finish up the thing. I plan on adding another border yet and then calling it done. Not the best picture I know when I get the border on I will iron it and get better pictures of some of the blocks.

Just wanted to keep this picture somewhere. My Francie doll from 1965. Sold her on eBay this week. I'm sure she will be glad to get out of the cedar chest she's been in for the last 30 some years.

And last this little doll quilt I made up last night. Those pre cut squares and strips work soooooo nice for quick little projects like this. When you just feel like sewing some thing but not what you've been working on.

I don't remember Francie . . . but I did have a 'Midge' circa the same time *s*
The CW piece looks great!

Beautiful quilt! I love the little flag quilt. I've made about 5 of those myself.

Wow, you are busy!
