Aunt Maggie's Patchwork Quilt

Last month Sandy (aka "Sandy no blog") and I were talking and she mentioned that she missed our quilt-a-longs from last year.  She said they kept her motivated knowing there was a deadline to get the blocks shown on my blog.   We started looking for a pattern and both mentioned that we wanted to use our Civil War stash as the basis for the quilt.    Mary R (a fellow Woolie) had recently finished this quilt and we both fell in love with it.  So....our decision was made!

The pattern is by Lori Smith.  

 We decided to do 4 blocks per month.  So here are Sandy's 4.









And these are my four.




And I think I messed up on the flying geese on the outsides of this next block.  I turned them around and also switched my colors.   But....would you have even noticed if I hadn't told you?   Probably not!
I shoulda kept quiet, huh?   :)





These are my 4 all together.  


These blocks are a bit more complicated than the Civil War sampler which is a good thing, since there are 50 blocks to make for the Sampler quilt but only 18 for this one.  Whew...dodged a bullet on that one.  

You're probably wondering what has happened to my wool obsession.  Never fear...I'm hand stitching away on the Christmas Quilt.  You know...the one that I prepped all in one fell swoop?  Anyway, I'm just finishing up block 9, so not much longer to go on that one.  

Hope you're enjoying your week and getting lots of sewing time.

Hugs, Anne

Great looking blocks. Somewhat complicated, but certainly do-able. Love your use of the Civil War fabrics. Always a faourite of mine.

Yikes...you're feeding my obsession with CW fabrics here, Anne! For the life of me I can't see anything wrong with the geese in that block! You and Sandy are well on your way to another fabulous quilt!
Cheers!
