More Civil War blocks #20 thru #25

I'm gaining on my conquest but some days it seems like 2 steps forward and 1 step back!  Does anyone else ever feel this way? I think I am getting so close to being caught up and Wham!!! another Saturday arrives and Barbara posts another block!  These weeks are just flying by too darn fast for me!  So here are 5 more Civil War blocks and actually I have a few more done but don't have pictures taken of them yet.  I really enjoy going on Flickr and looking at so many of the blocks and all the different color combinations that others have used. It makes me wonder just how many different fabrics there are out there in the quilt world, it has to be mind boggling!!
#25 Calico Puzzle
#24 Ladies Aid Album
#23 Illinois Roads

#22 Blockade

#21 Underground Railroad

#20 New England

The yellow lily picture is from my garden a little earlier this summer. I call it Lemon Lily, it was here when we moved to this house almost 40 years ago and is still blooming nicely. Aren't lilies just the best? You can always depend on them and they become like old friends, very trustworthy and stable...I just love them!! That's all for today, sew until next time, my wish for you--have a "Stitches" kind of day.


  1. Your blocks looks great! It's not long it's taking that matters -- it's that you continue to press on! Keep up the good work! :)

  2. It's not **how** long it's taking . . . sheesh! Oh yeah, and I love perusing through the Civil War yahoo group, too! Fascinating! :)

  3. Love your blocks and that lily is beautiful. So glad it has bloomed just for you.
    Good luck with your blocks.
    Happy days.
