Book Club - #1

I just finished stitching my Evelyn block this afternoon. I just decided to cut and mark this one rather than make templates. I love the cream with the purple vine I am using as my background. I just happen to have 1.5 yards of it in my stash. It was just meant to be!

I'll be linking up with our wonderful hosts tomorrow. Patty at Elm Street Quilts and Kristin at Simple Handmade  Everyday. There is still time to join in. 

Sometimes the soothing feeling of pulling a threaded needle through fabric is the best way to calm ourselves in these trying times. 



love that block--such pretty purples you used--
I did start the cutting on mine--found a lovely fat quarter bundle that I got as a gift a couple years ago that I am using--the problem is being what to use for the background color--??? Maybe tomorrow something will 'click' with me--in the meantime--I have been hand quilting--that always soothes my soul!
luv, di

Beautiful fabrics in your block. Sewing is a nice way to take your mind of off the rest of the world right now.

Love the beautiful purples. It's a perfectly peaceful way to piece fabrics together.

The purples are so pretty! Looks like finding that background fabric really inspired you!
