Loyal Union Sampler BOW 5 Beacon Lights

Beacon Lights.
I love doing this Block of the Week, and staying caught up!
The light blue is from a fat quarter I just got in Kingston weekend before last. I know I thought I had plenty of blues, but I couldn't resist adding more. I may have to start looking for more whites too!

Loyal Union Sampler BOW #4

LUS Block of the Week #4.
D-9 Gerda's Puzzle.
I have a few pieces from a fabric line that is blue, white/cream, and a little gold.
I love these fabrics! 
I picked up a few fat 1/4s this weekend to add to the mix too!

Loyal Union Sampler BOW #3

Still keeping up! Three weeks in a row!
Hand stitched. I think I am going to try keeping track of how long each block takes to complete. I spent 30 minutes last night putting it together and it got me wondering how much time I do spend on hand piecing. Most of my hand sewing is spent while watching the kids at various activities-but I am still curious :)

Loyal Union Sampler!

I made my first block from the Loyal Union Sampler by Jennifer Chiaverini.
I have decided to make it all blues and whites and creams. 
I have plenty in my stash to choose from.
This first block is hand pieced, and I will attempt to hand piece the entire top.
I hope to keep up with the Block of the Week with the LUS yahoo group!
Wish me luck :)
