October Westering Women Block


Today I made the October Westering Women block - super quick and simple this month. The block is called Rocky Mountain Chain - the blocks tell the story of western imigration in the 1800's, so I guess we are getting near the west coast with a Rocky Mountain block.


Only 2 more blocks to go before the quilt is finished.
When I was looking for the pattern today I was surprised to see my last month's block on today's Civil War Quilts blog post - it is my favourite quilt block so far (and the hardest to sew).

This week I finished knitting a couple of cowls, using yarn that I dyed and spun.



I find little cowls really practical since I am usually cold.

Sunset with the laser Christmas lights shining.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Lovely blocks, so nice to have a story attached to the journey pioneers took as well as the quilters at the time.
