One, Two Buckle My Shoe

Here you go Karen! It was completed at 10:05 Pacific Mountain Time.

For everyone else - Karen (from Passionate Quilter) and I had a challenge to complete one DJ block by Saturday night. This is the block I took to Oregon and worked on a bit at Rockaway Beach, though there was still quite a bit left to sew. The block that Karen was sewing was H-3 - a very complicated looking block - one that I have not done yet. So her challenge looks a little more difficult than mine.

I am quite excited that mine is finished and now on to the next challenge - hey Karen :)))

I still need to scan the photo in and get posted to my virtual DJ webpage.

I have been busy working this week (something I think should be banned!!) and just started taking the pictures for my Oregon "shop hop" I will be posting those pictures in the next day or two.

Time to get back at it!!

It has been such a long time since I worked on any of my DJ blocks. I had a bunch prepared and sitting in little baggies just waiting -- I don't know why it has been so long. I hope that I don't have too many long stretches of time off my DJ or I will never get it completed. Anyway I started back on Friday with -- "One two buckle my shoe" Boy there are a lot of pieces in this one!!

When I was out at the fabric by the pound sale in August I bought a few bits of fabric for the DJ quilt as well. They didn't have much in the way of the civil war era fabric for sale there but I did find one nice little collection. I also had bought a couple of fat quarters in my summer travels as well.

I am getting quite a collection of fabrics. I hate to buy the fat quarters because you really only need a fat eighth to make a block - and sometimes even less. It is very difficult to find fat eighths. I see there are a couple of shops in Oregon that have civil war fabrics and maybe they have fat eighths. Another good reason to shop :)))
