Spools Doll Quilt

My great-niece turned three last week so I sent her this little doll quilt that I made.

Civil War 150

I haven't posted any photos of my Civil War 150 blocks lately, so here are some that I have made in the past month or so...

I've been having a lot of fun with feature fabrics - fussy cutting them to fit the blocks.

Now I have both Generals Grant and Lee represented.

I am up to date and have 29 blocks so far...that makes 29 weeks out of the year.

Acadia National Park, Maine

My husband and I returned last week from a trip to Maine. Isn't this just how you picture it to look? We had a marvelous time, hiking, eating lobster, and just enjoying each other's company. I even found a quilt shop in Bar Harbor called Fabricate where I bought some blueberry fabric!

Flag Quilt

Happy Fourth of July weekend! This is a mini quilt I made a couple years ago. It now resides in my friend Kitty's country house. I have made a few little flag quilts - they are awfully fun to make when you are in a patriotic mood! We are planning to go to a baseball game on the 4th - how American is that? - and then we leave on the 5th for a week's vacation in Maine.
