A new quilt!

But first my updates. :-)
Still making good progress with House #8. I have next Monday off work and I hope to really get some good stitching time in (plus of course some quilting time).

And here is the back piece of my chaise lounge chair. I'm hoping to move onto another section by the weekend. It's pretty fast stitching and once you know the repeats you hardly have to look at the chart.

Here is my new quilt! It's a block of the month quilt called Civil War Tribute and it's made up of fabrics designed by Judie Rothermel. I had been eyeing it for quite some time and I kept telling myself that I didn't need another quilt project and the plan was to go through some of my stash. But I kept going back and going back to look at it. It's a biggy - 100 x 112 and will fit my bed nicely. But I don't need another quilt project. :-) Well.... I was reading blogs yesterday in an effort to get caught up and I saw that Laurie over at the Corgi Cottage had just completed the first two blocks of the series. I was sunk at that point and I knew I had to do it. Browns, burgundy and blues with what looks like set in seems! Perfect! So I signed up for the quilt and should have my first package next week. :-) I can't wait to get going.
