Carolyn. I love your sashing. I checked out page 9 and it is a striking layout.
I'm not making two of these but I am working on both the Loyal Union Sampler and on Sylvia's Bridal quilt. I have 10 blocks completed and another 60 cut out and waiting to be pieced. My goal is to have one or the other ready to assemble at the 2014 Oregon retreat.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Carolyn, I love your blocks and the sashing. I know what you mean about Christmas presents. My children will be lucky to get Mug Rugs! I'm having too much fun with my Virtual Quilt Guild on QCA!
Carolyn (CarolBeau):This might be the only project I work on in 2014, as I've decided to do the fancy sashing on page 9. It's a lot if work, but I am quite happy with the results I'm seeing so far.
I didn't look through the books I missed the fancy sashing. I really like the look with your blocks.
They look beautiful.
lots of love
I love your sashing. I have not even thought about what the sashing yet. l will have to read page 9.
Carolyn that is great sashing and a beautiful layout.

Just wanted to thank everyone for their nice comments. Having so much fun looking at all your beautiful blocks. Can not wait till tomorrow to face new challenges. Better get back to my knitting because I know I will want to get started on the new blocks whenever I can get my granddaughter to take a nap.
P.S. Kris you will have to show me your socks when you are done. I have never knitted socks.
I've never knitted anything. I love socks and I'm determined to make myself a pair. I'm taking a class and I have a book. Some say start with a scarf but I want socks. I'll take a photo of my progress when I get home. I'm doing two at a time on one long circular needle.
I have been knitting since I was about 7 years old and I was not allowed to start with a scarf. I sent the summer making a cable sweater. So if you want a pair of socks go for it. Looking forward to seeing them.
LOL. Thanks Jeanette.

Wow Kris, that is very ambitious, I've knitted a lot of things, but never socks. Can't wait to see them.
I've got 6 more blocks made, now to find time to take photo's and post them. I think I am still behind by a few blocks but I'll probably be behind until the holidays are over.
Here is a picture of my sashing fabric with new cornerstone fabric and one of additional fabrics I am adding to the Civil War Jubilee collection. I am using 1/4 yd of the cornerstone fabric in the blocks also. Have another brown I can use if needed.
I may be behind but still patiently waiting for next release of blocks. One of the good things about living out west

Nana, are you just posting 4 blocks this time? That's all I see here, or am I just jumping the gun?
