A Simple and Satisfying Saturday!

I just love a day like today. 
Watched a tennis match between my two favorites stars, Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal (lounging in my pajamas until 10am!)
Then played a little game myself called...
Catch Up.
Now I am only 2 blocks shy of being up-to-date with my Civil War BOW.
Fort Sumtner is my favorite block so far; but now I want to go back and remake some of the other blocks to be as dramatic in color.  I always do this in a sampler quilt project, but I am going to follow my own advice and just wait until the end and see how they all work together.
Wishing everyone a Happy Mother's Day.

Sure don't see anything there that needs redone. Love your fabric choices. Think I'll borrow your cartoon. Hope you don't mind.

I LOVE your blocks, Cheryl. Perfect fabric combinations. Would you kit the blocks for me? teehee!

I love the colors you have chosen. I wish I could say I was only two blocks behind. I keep changing my mind about colors and fabrics. One of these days, I will settle on something.

Stunning block, Cheryl. And I agree, wait to decide if you should redo any of the others. I love the 5 you show in this post. You have great color sense. Love the comic - happy mothers day to you, too.

Lovely blocks Cheryl, the Richmond block is my favourite.
Yours will all look wonderful together. I have only made 6 blocks but managed a remake on one of them which makes 7.

Hope your catch-up game went well! Your Civil War BOM blocks are wonderful. I can see why the Fort Sumter block is your favorite.
