Vignette & CW Block of the week

I have been stitching and stitching and stitching on this block for about a month. I was finally able to get it together this morning. I still have to add 7 blocks around the top and left side to make it a finished block but I need to wait until I get more fabrics to make it a bit scrappier. Blocks 2 & 3 are next and those will probably take me 2 months at least to get the stitching and piecing done. A lot of work but oh so fun to do. I also was able to do this weeks Civil War block. Luckily it was a quick and easy one.
That's all the time I had this week. Next weekend I am going to the Long Beach quilt show so I don't think I will have any of my projects to share with you, instead I will have pictures of all the beautiful eye candy I come across.

I hope everyone has a happy, healthy, safe week.

Sew on!

Yes, there is a lot of embroidery in those blocks. They are both just beautiful. You do such great work. Love the CW block too.

Love the blocks...especially the first one...wonderful! The quilt show was nice, but I was disappointed that we couldn't take more photos...a lot of the quilts I wasn't allowed to take pictures.
