Civil War Bride Block 19

 
Applique I have missed you!  My first quilting love, yet we have drifted apart.  So, to ease my way back I have stitched Block 19 of the Civil War Bride quilt.  With eight blocks completed, my focus is on finishing the last twelve. 
 
A four day Easter weekend is just around the corner and timing is perfect, as I just started stitching the April Sweet Nostalgia block, Happy Easter.  I also finished another Dear Jane triangle and hope to have that posted soon.  Still happily working on crochet, but yet to try the felting!
 
Until next time.....happy quilting!

Busy, busy! One of the things I like about The Civil War Bride pattern is the animals and people blocks. Have you found the stitching easy, medium, or hard?
