Civil War Bride Bewitchment

The Civil War Bride Quilt got the better of me ;0)
I have been wanting to start it for quite a while but kept telling myself I should finish at least one thing before I did, lol, that didn't happen.
I spent most of Saturday night going through the CWBQ blog and any other blog I could find to see what other ladies had done in regards to colour and improvements.

So all day Sunday, I spent the day happily cutting out, gluing and sewing.

And there you have it, a competed CWBQ Block!
Now onto block number 2. This quilt has me bewitched. I absolutely loved working on this block.

Miss Matty had her turn with the needle also and I managed to get the pink round sewn on and the next round which is brown ready to sew to the centre piece. In this round you square up the whole quilt so you can sew in long rows, making it easier and ultimately faster.

The Coaster swap is over and my lovely new friend/swapper is Julie from Alaska!
She received my coasters the other day so I can show you all now and not spoil the surprise.

The first pic is the fronts of the coasters and the second pic is of the backs.
This was great fun to do. A real pleasure to meet someone new and I can't wait to get mine in the mail too !!
This was my first swap, it was a great experience and i will definitely be signing up for more.

Well that's it from me, can't wait till the 15th of this month, again ;)

Hope you all find time to stitch.
