Civil War block 20 that came out today, so I'm all caught up.  I'll probably start getting behind now, as we're hitting the road soon.

These are some blocks for the Thread Head quilt along.  I still have a bunch of setting blocks to make before I can start putting this one together.  You can see the one Joanne made on her blog and I am planning to do my borders the same as hers, except increase a few inches.  I decided to use mainly churn dash, Ohio star and sawtooth star blocks in mine.  My setting blocks are the same as Joanne's.

I have been working on these paper pieced blocks for a while and decided to put a couple together.  There will be nine blocks like this and then the border - I have 5 blocks paper pieced with 4 more to go.   It was published in Quilting magazine in 2006 - Everyday Best by Becky Goldsmith.  It's a good way to use small scraps!

Have a great weekend everyone!  Hope you get some sewing done.


  1. Wonderful! Beautiful, thanks for sharing your beautiful blocks.

  3. I can't wait to see how your quilt turns out - the blocks look great so far.
    The circle blocks are amazing.

  4. Your civil war blocks are coming along nicely, but those circles are truly awesome!


  5. Girl, you have been busy, busy! That circular block is very tempting to me, but I'll have to wait a bit. Your other blocks are going to make another beautiful quilt! ---"Love"

  6. I love your round blocks. It looks like they were quite the undertaking! I might have to look into finding a copy of that pattern.

  7. Your Civil Wars blocks are charming. I really like your fabric choices. The Thread Tails blocks are really good too and those pie blocks - wow! Ann :-)
