Fall is here and so is the World Series (stash report week 43)

Corydalis - sweet little perennial that blooms til the frost gets it

Once upon a time I followed baseball, especially Cardinal ball, very closely. Then about a decade ago MLB decided to change everything I had learned and added new teams and, well, now that I live here, I can just keep tabs on what's going on by listening to a few minutes of the news.  However, it is exciting to have the Cardinals in the World Series again, and, to have a big win like last night's game.

On to the business at hand - here's the backing to my former boss's quilt.

As DH watches NFL all afternoon, I should be quilting it, as simply as it is pieced.

Here are a couple hexie flowers.  I liked the yellow one that I sent off in the hexie swap so well that I made one for myself.  Of course, here's another polka dot.

The Clover & Violet Embroidery 101 blocks are all done.  WooHoo!!

Jennie has posted that she may do a smaller stitch along before the holidays.  So, if you'd like to try out some embroidery, check her blog.

I may not get this one together for a while, we'll see.  I have lots of UFOs in the quilting queue.

It's almost time for quilt guild meeting so here are my Civil War blocks.  This one is called "Union."

Not wanting the duplicate "Union" in a 6" version, here's "White House" from Barbara Brackman's Civil War Quilts blog.

This is the first time I've tried to match stripes.  You can tell - lol!  Oh well!

Finally, here are a couple charity blocks for guild called "X's and O's."

In this post I showed my latest stash additions - 11 FQs! I love FQs!!

  1. You got a lot done! I love your civil war blocks - great colors!

  2. You did get a lot done, at some point something will go out. Love the Clover and Voilet embroidery blocks. Very cute.

  3. Good week - love the variety of projects that you are working on.

  4. Wow, you've been busy this week! I love your civil war and X's & O's blocks!

  5. We are so far behind on the Brackman Civil war quilt. I used to follow baseball too. Years and years ago. When the Royals were actually good and beat the Cards in the World Series. Now the Royals don't give us much reason to want to follow.

  6. There are so many great FQ patterns available these days and you can get so many different fabrics with the same $$ as you'd get straight yardage, well maybe a little bit more. We have lots of places that set aside one day a week and run a special on FQs...find those places and days! Who says that stripes need to match? Nice things going on in your sewing room! Sandi
