This quilt was part of the Block of the Month I participated in at the Quilt N Stitch in West Monroe. You had to pay $5.00 for the first block and you got the next month free as long as you completed the block. I started quilting on it last Spring but put it away until the Fall and finally finished the hand quilting at the end of January 2009.

A few months I completed my Dear Jane quilt. I had a lot of Civil War fabrics left over so I decided to do a Paducah Nine Patch. The Paducah Nine Patch is on the cover of the Nickel Quilts book by Pat Speth. I did wind up purcashing a small amount of some new Civil War reproductions fabric I spotted at my favorite quilt shop. I just couldn't resist.
This is just the top. It has not been quilted yet. I still have my 30's sampler that needs to be quilted.

This is my five dollar 30s quilt. I started it in 2002. This was a block of the month at the Quilt N Stitch in West Monroe, LA. We paid $5.00 for the first block and if you completed your block and showed it at the next meeting you got the next block free. I finally got an applique border on. My next step will be to sandwhich the three layers together and baste the quilt. After I do that I will quilt it. I haven't decided whether I will machine or hand quilt it.

Put together this little purse this weekend. Was fun to put together. The first picture is the purse back. Has a zipper where you get into the purse. Purse is lined inside with a pretty fabric. Second picture is the purse front. It has a pocket in front too. Purses measure 8 by 10 inches.
