Jane Austen BOW 16 and 17

   BOW 16 
Lucky Pieces. I really like my fabric choices for this block. I made the flying geese with a rectangle and 2 squares. I prefer that to all triangles-they usually come out wonky!

BOW 17 
Waterwheel. Hmm, I am not as crazy about these fabric choices. But they are good enough!

Jane Austen BOW 15, King's Crown

This week's Jane Austen BOW is called King's Crown. It took a little longer as I made sure my fabric was facing the same direction. This block has a couple of new fabrics that I added to the mix. I hope I have enough for all of the blocks now. The pink is from Ladies Album and the small brown stripe is a reproduction that I have had in my stash for a while.

LUS BOW 36 Prosperity

This week's block went together very well. It did take some time as there are 41 pieces with some Y-seams. This was a block that the Y-seams turned out very well and lay very flat. One triangle is off in the middle snowball square. Not the place I expected! All in all a pretty block and well sewn. 
Finished it just in time too. Posted at 10:30 pm!

LUS BOW 35-Gettysburg

This block was due last Friday, but I finished it a little late. I was able to finish it Tuesday while I was at Jury Duty. It was a most interesting trial. The defendant represented himself and we really couldn't tell what his defense was. But it was a short, 2 day trial, and an interesting experience.

Jane Austen BOW 14

Wow, a busy day for me. I pulled out 1000 weeds and mowed the back lawn. Did a couple loads of laundry. Sewed an hour on Stacy's Red, White and Blue quilt. Cleaned my craft room at least an hour. I prepped the next LUS BOW. And I made this block! It is called Home Comfort for Jane's brother George. It turned out the right size, and I am pretty happy with the fabric choices. 
Next up-fried rice with leftover steak.
