Civil War Blocks & a Finish

I picked up my "Civil War Chronicles" BOM last weekend. I was afraid to see how many HST's we were in for this month. I looked at the block and thought, this isn't so bad this month. Then I read the cover. Make 8 blocks. So I went from 12 HST's to 96. LOL! This is April's "Civil War Tribute" blocks. One 18" finished and one 12" finished.
I finished sewing down the binding on my "Calendar Chair Redwork" this week. It's so nice to have a finish, it feels like it has been forever since my last one.

Thanks to all my blogging friends who offered their prayers to my mom. Her biopsy was Wednesday and our next appt. is the 19th of April. We are still praying for benign result and would appreciate good thoughts. She turns 86 this Friday!

Have a happy, healthy, crafty week!

I just love your calendar quilt! And now you're scaring me with all those HSTs in the next part of the BOM. I'm still stuck on Month 2. I think I need you to come over here and smack some sense into me. But all those HSTs - OY!!!!

Continued prayers for your mom that the test results come back and they're perfect.

Your "Calendar Chair Redwork" is definitely a work of art. I love the fabrics that you used in making it and I also love the way you stitched all of the pretty blocks together. All the best to you and keep up the good work! :)

The Chair quilt is beautiful, I'm partial to reds. Keeping your mom in my thoughts and prayers and hope the tumor is benign. I recently had some pain in one breast I was so nervous about it, but the Dr. said it looked okay and the mamo showed everything to be fine. I'm hoping the same for your dear mom. Hugs to both of you.
