Civil War Quilt blocks 6&7

I have spent an enjoyable afternoon with Rebecka. We completed block 6 & 7 of the Civil War Quilt.
The last time I mentioned using a Singer Featherweight for this project she didn't have a name. As I've worked with the FW there is the aroma from the wooden case. It reminds me of being taught to sew by my father. He liked the name Rebecka but could not abide the nick name Becky. So I was named Therese but my lovely machine is Rebecka . Richmond
Log Cabin

I remember log cabins from my childhood. Also building them from Lincoln Logs. Now where do you suppose the popular toy got it's name?

Large stippleing and binding complete this quilt for Windsor Community Quilters. A nice bit of comfort for a local nursing home.
I have also spent some time with the butterflies and made several blank labels. I MUST label quilts this year. As I do so I will post a bit about each one. A good way to show older work.

A trip to the Blue Mts and a visit with Kaite. Lots of Show & Tell. Have a good week dear Friends

I've seen quite a few of these blocks popping up. Great to see how they all feel different with the different fabrics used. You are going to have a lovely quilt at the end of it
