WIP Wednesday: Friends & Companions

Yes, I was sucked into another QAL. This one is from Marcus Brothers, celebrating their new line by Paula Barnes,"Companions."

I'm using bits and pieces from my own Civil War Repros stash.

Because I dropped everything to do a test-sew, I'm behind by one week. The instructions are excellent, though, so I should be caught up this weekend.  Here are my first two blocks:

The top block is "Union Forever," by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts.

On the bottom is Paula Barnes' block, from Red Crinoline Quilts, instructions here.

New blocks are added each Friday. I'm planning a Skype-along with my friend in Ohio for the next blocks. Click on the Friends & Companions banner, above, for the schedule of designs.

I'll have a Quilt Block a Day finish to show you on Friday!

  1. I like those blocks and I've just downloaded the instructions. Guess that another QAL I'm doing as well.

  2. LOL - I don't think its hard for you to "get sucked into another QAL", but doing it with others works well.


Thanks for taking your time to comment. If I don't answer in an email, it's because you're a no-reply commenter and I can't find you!
