Magic Gemstones.. & Civil War blocks 7-8

I've decided it will be a quilt after all...
What I had in mind would not suit these fabrics, (that's my excuse anyway) guess what, yep I ordered more fabrics, isn't that what quilters!
I'm really pleased with how this is now measure 48 inches across, so I'm thinking perhaps another 6 inches across and then a few more rows length ways and it should be a nice lap size quilt...♥

Civil War blocks 7-8 are done...that's me up to date, until tomorrow anyway..
These two were really easy ones to do....

It's too hot to keep on sewing to the beach foreshore for an ice cream and a walk along the beach...
Until next time...take care...♥


  1. Love your Civil War blocks. I'm doing this project too. I see you're in Perth, me too. Is the heatwave absolutely killing you? My sewing room is without A/C and not a pleasant place to be at the moment.

  2. Your CW blocks are great!

    Love Magic Gemstones.

    I hope you can keep cool tomorrow!

  3. Your B/Brackman BOW's look fabulous, look forward to getting the next one (it should arrive Saturday, 2200hrs EDST).
    Your Magic Gemstones looks like it has Kaffe Fassett fabrics in there, it is quite stunning!!!
    We're finally getting rid of some of the heat here now, am looking forward to Autumn as of next week!!!

  4. Your little quilt is very pretty. Good for you keeping up with the civil War blocks. I didn't start them, but am enjoying seeing all the blocks that everyone else is making.

  5. I really like the fussy cut in the CW block and I like the other one too. I look forward to these blocks, don't you?

    Magic Gemstones is looking lovely!

  6. I love your quilt and the civil war blocks! All is lovely!

  7. Well done Julia, it wasn't long ago that you were looking for the pattern and now it is close to completion!
    You don't need an excuse for buying fabric because you actually use it. Whereas I buy in anticipation of using it, there lies the difference. Your BB blocks are lovely and the new one is not too difficult.

  8. Your quilt top looks great! Lucky you...I'd give anything to be able to go for a walk on the beach. Hope you had a great time! :0)

  9. Love your Magic Gemstones! and your CW blocks are great!!

  10. Your CWB are wonderful Julia and now I see the weaving effect on the quilt. It's looking lovely, keep going.

  11. You are my magic fabric friend. You always choose the best fabrics for your projects. Take for instance those CW blocks. YUMMY!!!

    Now your Magic Gemstones... whew. I completely love that. How totally pretty.

    Exceptional my friend. That's you. Exceptional.

  12. Hi Julia.

    Ilike the way your gemstones look like. I wish it was mine :-)

    Hugs Elisabeth
