Westering Women and Squishy Mail

A Happy New Year to everyone!

I got some fabric goodness in the mail today so had to update this post. Randy, who blogs at Barrister's Block, sent me some lovely bits and pieces from her French General fabrics, which she very generously share with several bloggers. Such a treat! Right now she is making some awesome tiny log cabin blocks! Make sure you check them out, HERE.

I am still thinking over my quilting plans for this new year. Though I know definetly there will be two baby quilts made. I am going over my WIPs, UFOs, and patterns. I did have one goal still left form 2016  that I wanted to finish quickly and that was my Westering Women blocks from Barbara Brackman's BOM, you can read about Westering Women HERE. She is starting another BOM soon called, Yankee Diary, you can read about that HERE. It begins January 25 and is going to include some applique blocks this time.

I enjoyed this BOM and one of the aspects I really liked were Barbara posts as we traveled westward with these brave women, reading about their lives and their journey.

I got busy and finished the last five blocks. (I was five blocks behind! How did that happen!)

Chimney Rock

Sage Bud

Rocky Mountain Chain

Bear's Paw

Road to California

All twelve blocks together. Now to decide on a setting. Barbara has given several suggestions.

I did have to buy one new pattern! 

Happy Quilting, Rebecca
