Design Wall Monday

Three more Civil War Diary Quilts blocks. So cute,
but for a change from working with small 6 inch blocks, I made this table runner. It is from a turnover set. Large pieces, wow, it went together so fast!! I want to practice quilting  with this and then it is going to a friend.

This is the week to get restarted on the old routine:
diet, exercise, cleaning and planning for my at home retreat next weekend.

The guys are going on a retreat with the youth group. I am going to a Women's retreat the next weekend. I need to get tons of stuff done to be ready!!

The Civil War blocks are all great. Not sure I'd have the patience to sew all those strips for to make the third one!

Great civil war blocks - I admire anybody who has the patience for the smal size blocks! I need to 'steal' your idea and test some quilting on table runners; they sure make perfect gifts! Good luck with your routine and preparation for retreat!
