What I've been doing

This is my 10th block that I have made as part of the Civil War Bride Quilt. I have reached my goal of 10 blocks for the year but since I'm enjoying making this quilt so much I'm going to continue to aim for a completed block a month..

I had a birthday last week so I treated myself to a kit called Grace, by 3 sisters (Moda).
I love the look of  the logcabin blocks and houses and this quilt has the perfect combination.
The kit came from The Thrifty Needle .  Please check them out as I received great customer service from this site and the prices are very reasonable.

I have already started the roofs and the chimneys and began to cut all the other strips ....

I also received from my friend Jan-Maree  these blocks as part of the swop I participate in line with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge

Finally I'll leave you with a picture of a corner in the garden just outside my quilting studio. Today in Melbourne we are having a lovely sunny day, birds singing and the fragrant smells of the flowers...
Perfect day...
