FNSI - DWR and some new blocks


Last night I made more arches for my DWR quilt and sewed  another ring. I have four now



Here they are

I said in older posts that I wouldn't begin any other project until I finished this quilt. Well I should have kept my mouth shut.
I couldn't resist a glimpse on this wonderful book  " Civil War Legacies  by Carol Hopkins ". I don't have the book but I saw some of the projects in it and couldn't help myself. I love civil war blocks and fabric so... Here is what I did the rest of the night ( and A bit today,too).

Your DWR quilt will be gorgeous , that seems like so much work to me , are the curves a challenge? Love the new blocks too , sometimes it is good to have a change ;-)

Ha! The fabric you chose for the BeArsPaw(?) blocks is gorgeous. And ditto for the DWR, so bright and cheerful. It's coming along splendidly :)

Love the double wedding ring blocks. Nice job.

Visiting from FNSI and have to say I love the double wedding ring blocks and also your civil war ones. I believe we should all have a couple of quilts on the go so as not to get bored or bogged down with our sewing. I also have two knitting projects on the go in case I get sick of looking at the one colour all the time lol

The DWR is a "someday" quilt for me. Yours is just gorgeous and I love the Mary's Dishrag blocks. You will love that book.
