The many projects

My current projects are each holding their own right now. I finally finished the zigzag on Love Entwined, getting it to a photo opportunity.

The Loyal Union Sampler quilt is begun, or that should be quilts are begun. I decided to make two, one like the cover picture using Anneke's Collection from Red Rooster fabrics and the other in blue and yellow and white. The setting is going to be totally different for each quilt. The reproduction is pretty easy, since I am using the same fabrics Jennifer used (I actually bought them thinking that there would eventually be an LUS pattern). The blue and yellow and white takes a bit of thought since it is totally scrappy. Someone was talking about Lollyquiltz and how she set her Farmer's Wife Sampler, and I think it will be perfect for the blue/yellow/white version, see here.Here are a few fuzzy blocks from each type (I am making them both at the same time, except for the few I made when testing blocks for Jennifer).

And finally, continuing on the Civil War BOM with the Stitchin' Witches:

This one is Union Square.
