Just need 6 more ohio stars I don't care for this one think it's the fabric I used, think I will be doing this one again with what I wanted to use, I'll get it finished and I think this one will be going to Randy's aunt who just bought a condo will be a nice house warming gift.

Had an awesome time at the retreat and got lots done 2 tops finished and 3/4 of the 3rd top done.This first top is one I seen on the Connecting Threads catalogue and I had a fat quarter bundle so I winged it. and the second top is the 2nd in the series of 5 this one is called Civil War Chronicles, as you can see from the pics we still have lots of snow, there was hardly any at the retreat.
Need to make the latest released block of the CWAnniversary quilt
this week and hopefully get a backing made and loaded for the first top.

Finished the 12th blocks of the Civil War Anniversary quilt. Thursday I go to the retreat 4 more sleeps. The weather has been nice but the snow is not going fast enough. Sad news I think I lost all my fish in the pond somehow the plug to the de-icer came off and the pond was iced over and I can smell a strong fish odor, not happy had these fish eating from my hand.

Played this morning and got 2 more blocks made and attached this is a project you can work on any time just sew strips together, don't know what I'm doing wrong but I think when I'm squareing up I'm off with the point you can see in the picture I'm not fretting over it will try to square up better.

This is Bonnie Hunter's pattern Virginia Bound I don't have the pattern so I made up a template from the block Priscilla I found in EQ I made it 14.5" unfinished this is what I have so far now that the picture is up I must check the first block and adjust the points they look off????or maybe it's the tan strip.Should get a better idea when there are 2 more blocks attached hopefully tomorrow I can play.
