I seem to be falling behind on poor Cassandra’s Circle sew-a-long. I last posted block #8, Molly’s Cotton Boll.
Here is block #9
back (I had already removed the selvedge from this fabric, but I believe it is from Barbara' "Lately Arrived From London". Love it!
I have taken a lot of liberties with these blocks to make them fit my smaller (9’ finished) size. I had this one all quilted and bound and then realized I had to add a heart. After all, it is called, “Buck Preston’s Lost Love”!
back (this is one of my all time favorite fabrics - I know, I have a lot of favorites!
Please visit Barbara’s Civil War blog (here) to read the wonderful accounts of Mary Chestnut’s life and her “circle of friends”.
These are all wonderful. I'm so enjoying the rich colors you've chosen!ReplyDelete
I so love all your Cassandra's Circle blocks, and I think it's because of the wonderful background fabric you chose. So much more interesting than boring white solid.ReplyDelete
Just lovely blocks!! I think the backgrounds are beautiful--no wonder they're your favorites...hugs from afar JulieroseReplyDelete
I find your backing fabrics as interesting as the front of the block.ReplyDelete
Your blocks are so beautiful. HugsReplyDelete
The blocks are gorgeous, as always! But I have to say, those backing fabrics leave me drooling. You always find the best fabrics--is that because you shop at The Busy Thimble? :)ReplyDelete
Stunning - I love your whole-hearted embrace of color! It's always fun to see how you approach each of these blocks. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Your fabric choices are wonderful as are the blocks--love them! I've always planned to read Mary Chestnut's diary, but it never seems to happen. Fun to see the blocks Barbara has chosen.ReplyDelete
Such beautiful blocks!! You’d never know the heart was a late addition. I have a lot of all time favorites too 🤣ReplyDelete
Once again you’ve outdone yourself. I just love these blocks.ReplyDelete
Such a nice job!
Beautiful blocks, beautiful fabrics!ReplyDelete
Your blocks are awesome and the colors just vibrate.ReplyDelete
Love the heart addition;). And oooo yes that's a great yellow. Hope you are cozy warm these days.ReplyDelete
lovely blocks. Thank you for always showing us the back. I love these browns.ReplyDelete
Nice job on "miniaturizing" your blocks! As always, your fabric stash is da bomb!ReplyDelete
That yellow is indeed a pretty fabric. I think it is appropriate that you forgot the heart - it is indeed a lost love!ReplyDelete
Darling blocks! I had some of those cool pheasant fabric too!ReplyDelete
