Civil War and Dear Jane blocks

I managed to get some Civil War and Dear Jane blocks done this past weekend. The block in the first picture on the bottom right is one of this week's suggested blocks as are all three in the second picture.




As my hand is still bothering me I tried to stay away from the hand applique and piecing and did some paper pieced and some rotary cut/machine pieced blocks. I also spent an inordinate amount of time on one Dear Jane block - Paddle Wheels - that did not get done. I'm still not sure if the problem was me or EQ but I set it aside because it was getting too annoying to keep playing with it. I'll go back to it another day and probably hand piece with templates.

Have a Pieceful Day!

The blocks are great. When did you find the time? I didn't know you were making that denim quilt, I really like the embroidery on those blocks.

Love your blocks, especially Bull Run...now I'm wondering if I should re-do my block...my blue is dark and you can't see the brown box. Humm... yours are fabulous!

Your blocks are great Caryn! I can't believe you're doing both of them -- that's lots of blocks!
