generous


These lovely fabrics were a generous gift from Leanne - lizziethequilter - after she read my posts about the cutting mistakes on the first Civil War blocks I'd made.

 If you read Leanne's current post, she writes about the generosity and friendship of the many quilters and crafters she's met through her blog over the years.

I count myself lucky to be one of those bloggin' friends.  Thank you Leanne for these beautiful fabrics and my quilt will be all the more special for having been made from yet more gifted fabrics.


So I used some of Leanne's fabric and the mistake blocks made last time to create one of the extra 12 inch blocks I'm going to need for this quilt. It's a nod to St Patrick's Day and that both sides of my family have Irish roots.

The next block to make from Kelli's *six-pack* was the Card Trick. I spent some time searching the interwebs looking for a clever trick to make this but alas, alack, no. Just use lots of starch and press carefully!
