I managed to get Allietare, and Farmer's Wife all sewn together. Now it is time for borders!
I worked on the Saw tooth square block, and got it finished for the May RSC color which is green.
Rebecca at Quilting Everyday showed a BOM that she had discovered called Westering Women from Barbara Brackman's blog Civil War Quilts. Along with a block each month she provides a short history lesson about the great westward migration in the United States during the 1800's. Growing up on the west coast at the end of the Oregon Trail that is the first history we learned in school, and even though it was over 150 years ago there are still places where you can see wheel ruts and tree scars from wagons.
Have you ever purchased a set of fabric but never found the "perfect project" to use it in? I had a set of fabrics which I had purchase several years ago. I think the line was called Rhubarb and Ginger by Blackbird Designs for Moda.
January's block is called Independence Square. I am 3 blocks behind, but I had to join because I think this will be the perfect fabric to use for this project.
I know I don't have much sew to show, but it isn't like I haven't been doing anything at all.
DH and I removed all the Christmas Decorations from the tree in the yard....by lifting him up in the bucket of the tractor.
I planted boysenberries, garlic, a few flowers, lettuce, cabbage, repotted some of my tomatoes and have been trying to harden them off so they can be outside when it stops getting cold (they are living in the garage and coming out during the day in a wagon). I still have a bunch in the sun room as well as pumpkins. The tomatoes I may have to plant into larger pots. I also prepared some pots and containers for flowers on the porch, and lots of weeding. I also have a fuzzy group to watch that are occupying the sun room.
