Civil War Chronicles - Month 6

I was able to get this months "Civil War Chronicles" blocks for June done this morning. This is the half way mark to getting this top done. I thought I would get month 5 of Civil War Tribute done this weekend too but I cut wrong and now have to wait for replacement fabric. DOH!!! At least I have all the major components done and as soon as my fabric arrives it should be a breeze to put together. 10 more klosjes to add to my collection. This brings the total to 245. :)
I also have been working on my Bonnie Hunter quilt. This is from her book "Leaders and Enders" and it called, Blue Ridge Beauty. I am in love with Bonnie's books and am now hoarding scraps. I have only been working on this as a leader and ender project. The left tub is 2" blue squares, the middle is 2" light squares and the right tub are sewed blue and light patches. Once I am done I will turn them into four patches. One day I am just going to sit and sew, sew, sew them all together. I can't wait to see how it turns out. I want to do every quilt in her books.
Have a great week everyone!

Your blocks are just wonderful. I have never tried the leaders and enders, maybe I should?

Robin said...

I wish I had the fortitude to deal with scraps; I usually just throw mine away. I feel like a bad quilter sometimes!

Beautiful blocks, Yvette!
