Congrats to Marilyn Robertson of IN for posting the winning comment on the Sew We Quilt blog last week. She won a copy of The Civil War Sewing Circle. Thanks also to all who entered the giveaway. Honestly, I wish I could send a book to each and every one of you . . . I promise I will try to do another giveaway later this month.

Keep working on your little nine-patch quilts for April's quilt of the month. This is week 2 and you should have your 2" squares cut at least.

If you don't like the pattern I gave you, make it your way. Do your own nine-patch doll quilt. Be creative. If you like borders, add borders. If you like applique, add some applique. Simple can still be good though. You know how I love my simple little nine patch blocks -

So, if you haven't started yet, get out your scrap basket and start cutting already!

I have the quilt ready for quilting.
It looks very beautifull.
When I am finished I send you a photo.
Thank you for the pattern.
Greetings from a cold Holland.

Congratulations to Marilyn!
I need to print it out and make one, really like this design and fun to make min versions.

Finally, finally I will have time to work on my little quilt tomorrow! Thank you for running this fun monthly sew along. I have a terrible time waiting for the new monthly quilt to be announced, even though I have to confess I didn't even have time to cut out March's Civil War Baskets. Oh well never enough time to quilt!

Congratulations Marilyn!
I hand pieced the 9 patch top & skinny inside border( top & bottom) & am going to add another wider border top & bottom, then hand quilt. Have enjoyed it! Thanks for hosting! B

I just made a layout for my quilt, using modern fabrics. I'm going to make sashing between the blocks. Thank you for sharing!
