Several Things but maybe Design Wall for next Post

The BB Suffrage block for this week: deals with how women used to have to leave their children behind if they had to leave a marriage.  Also forfeited whatever fortune they had brought into the marriage since that automatically became part of the husband's assets upon the marriage.

I ordered this pillow cover from a Swedish company called Countrybymail.  When it arrived, I ironed it and inserted a pillow form in it and I had a new decoration, what could be easier lol??

I got this wonderful indigo hand-stitched quilt top on Saturday; the blocks are only 6-1/2" finished.  Made in Ohio:


a little motto card:

I worked and worked on Saturday and Sunday and now have my new design wall area almost done but not quite so I guess it will save for the next post.  I am hoping that wallpaper paste will hold up the foamboad design wall pieces; wish me luck because I don't think there is an Option B :-).

I like your block. I always enjoy seeing how you make the block your own by the addition of pictures, writing, or fussy cut fabrics. You have quite a knack for doing that.

Your blocks and what they say are a true inspiration to others especially in this modern world. And your courage in facing your own personal struggle is an example in so many other ways. Bless you for sharing with us!!!!

Wow--what a find! I love the blue and white quilt--so charming with the adorable doll in the embroidered dress. Your design walls are great. It makes me wish I had even more room to grow!
