More Civil War Chronicles Progress

Today we enjoyed that rarest of all events in the Central Texas area, a nice rainy day.  So, after a visit to my dentist, who kindly worked me in before the holidays to repair a broken tooth, I was able to begin adding the setting triangles to some of the CWC blocks.  Here are a few of them, with several more remaining.  I decided to slightly oversize the triangles when I cut them out, so these will definitely need to be trimmed up. 

I like this quilt, but it has dominated the majority of my quilting time for several weeks.  I’m ready for some variety.  So, this afternoon I indulged in a little exploratory excursion into my quilting closet to see what I might start working on when this project finally reaches flimsy stage.  There are several possibilities to think about.  In the meantime, I’ve decided to take my Jacob’s Ladder blocks to Sit ‘N Sew tomorrow, just for a change in pace.

So far we have had less than a quarter inch of rain, but are hopeful that some more may come our way later tonight or in the morning.

I can certainly see why these blocks have taken up so much of your time... they are, however, lovely!

Have fun at your Sit 'N Sew today!

I have been watching your progress on these blocks and they do look great. I do agree, that sometimes we do need a little change when working on a long-term project - variety is the spice of life!
