Slow Sunday Stitching -- Let's Book It!

I have a feeling that this project will be my Let's Book It! project for quite a wile.  I really like this little quilt.  It's what's in my to-go bag right now for swimming lessons, doctor appointments, speech therapy... (linking here with Sharon of Vroomans Quilts for Let's Book It Challenge). 

This week I got all the green of the stem and leaf done.   C & T Publishing keeps sending me these super tempting e-mails.  They have been having $5 blowout sales on books.  I bought a few. Visit the site each Friday for their $5 Blowout Deals.   
 
 One of them was Welcome Home ~~ Surround Yourself with Country Warmth, by Cheryl Wall.  Cheryl got my attention with the adorable house blocks made from shirtings.  I've been dying to get into my plaid/shirtings scrap bin.  It's over full.
 
Here's the block I made for Cheryl's pattern, Welcome Home Sampler Quilt.  It's the first one in the book.  It's a step-by-step instruction.  I'll need to read a little ahead to streamline the cutting process. 
 
 
I'm also linking up with Kathy's Quilts.  It's Slow Sunday Stitching day here!

  2. Thank you for the CT sale link - I passed it on to our quilt guild 'name draw' gift person for possible pick ups. The block is coming along nicely. Using Slow Sunday is perfect for completing hand work.

  6. I have the Welcome Home book but have not made the quilt. I did another of her quilt designs that was vert similar so I have not had the motivation to make this one. You are doing very good on yours.

  8. Very cute block! I've purchased way too many books from the $5 Blowout Deals--I should probably stop shopping and make something from one of them!
