More Civil War Blocks

Finished 2 more sets of blocks for the Civil War quilt! It is moving along quite nicely and quicker than I thought it would. I like doing just a few blocks at a time and they are fairly simple patterns. The fabric is lovely--it was in a kit from my local quilt store, Quilt Mercantile. The first picture shows the blocks that are Card Trick and the second show the blocks that are Sawtooth Stars. I had never done Card Trick before and that was a new experience. By following the picture very, very carefully, I didn't have to do too much "frog" (rip-it, rip-it) stitching!!!!
A week from today is Thanksgiving and we will be in Ohio visiting our DD and her family--can hardly wait to see them again! I sure there will be plenty of tea parties and girly things to do. Isabel will turn 6 on December 3rd and Ilena is 3 on January 4th. So we know there will be one birthday party while we are there! What fun to look forward to!
Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Your blocks look great Jan! Where in Ohio does your DD and family live? Being in Ohio myself I'm curious about things like that! :0)

Great blocks Jan, I love the civil war fabrics. I know you will have fun with the grandgirls.

Hope you have a great time in Ohio. I know it well.
Your civil war blocks look good. Yep the card tricks are a little tricky.

Your cute raffle quilt should do well for the GKs school. You are so lucky to be close to at least one set of Grands.
