Scrap Fun

Have you heard the joke about the bed?

It hasn't been made up yet.

That's my best to you for April Fool's Day!

Barbara Brackman's discussion of Civil War foulards was very enlightening and, as always, enjoyable.

 I found myself eager to create a few blocks.

My very best one used Barbara Brackman's own design of Richmond Reds in the tossed floral of the cream colored star points that you see below. Her link is here.

The center's red paisley and the madder foulard with the dark chocolate background were more delightful but anonymous scraps from Wendy's gift to me. Thanks, Wendy! Her blog link is here.

And I got back to doing another Scrappy Jacob's Ladder block, too. This makes 22 of the 36 that I need.

I hope that nobody switched your sugar for salt today! LOL!

Happy stitching!

Some really pretty blocks, Vic.
We are such a couple of fuddy-duddies at our house. I don't think it would even occur to us to play tricks on each other. : )

Those blocks are really going to make a beautiful finish.

You certainly have a great stash of 19th century repros. Such pretty blocks! A Jacob's Ladder has been on my to do list for a long time.

Ohhh! Love those stars. Love the Jacob's Ladder blocks as well. I made one in high school and it is still one of my favorite blocks.
