Are you having fun making these blocks? Watching everyone else make their blocks? I know I am

This is Betsy Chutchian's Crown and Star block - you can find the directions HERE

So far I'm keeping up and still loving the 6" blocks.

We have been keeping busy here. I'm cutting Derby House Block of the Month kits

and I had this delivered ........ my 27 year old Joy of Cooking was in pieces.
I would promise to take very good care of it - but things happen in a kitchen.  Things spill, and things fall off counters. I'll be happy if it last 27 years.

I was too late to jump on the bandwagon for your Derby House BOM from it ;o)

That's my go-to cookbook too and it is in the same shape as your older one. Mine is 41 years old, got it as a wedding gift. My brother got one when he was married and I was surprised at how updated it was. I think I'm due an update too! Happy stitching to you!
