A Sneak Peak

I joined Christine's Doll Quilt Exchange and was thrilled to be paired with Lisa of Stray Threads.  Lisa is interested in textile history and passionate about antique quilts. 
Check her out! I know you will enjoy what you see and read.
She was recently selected as one of the 50 Best Quilting Blogs by Guide to Art Schools.
Here is a sneak peak at the quilt I am making for her.
That little square measures 3" finished.
I hope she will like the quilt.

Another block posted over at my 1880 Sampler blog this am.  Here is what is in store for next week.
I'll keep alternating difficult and easier blocks.
Please remember to send me photos if you are following along.

I am working on a few quilts from Kathleen Tracy's new book, The Civil War Sewing Circle.
I'll be back to show them to you when they are finished.
This weekend should be quiet for the first time in a long time, so maybe I can catch up on the Civil War Quilt's BOTW.

Any Super Bowl fanatics out there?
Who will you be cheering for?
I'll be putting my money on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers!

Your little 3" square is truly amazing. When I stopped to figure that it meant every piece was 1 1/2" or smaller it just....well, WOW! Block #11 is quite stunning. We will probably watch the game but I don't have a favorite - just a good time for stitching - lol!

I love little blocks - can't wait to see the entire quilt. My husband will watch the game and call me for the halftime show. I don't even know who is performing this year.

Your little block is sweet. What a great idea to have a doll quilt exchange. I'm finishing up one for myself right now:)

Enjoy your stitching!

I love your little star. I'm sure she'll adore her quilt. I showed a sneak peak today on my blog as well.

Your little bitty star is wonderful - Lisa is going to love the quilt. :-)

I just got my Civil War Sewing Circle book - lots of wonderful projects to be enjoyed.

Your little 3" block is so cute. I am looking forward to see the whole quilt.
The 1880 sampler block is just as great as they all have been.
Have a nice weekend :-).
