Civil War Quilt Progress

A little progress here, it's an ongoing project in between other things.
Not much quilting this week, I have had the little boy plus one day out with my back just too painful for anything.
This is the plan for putting these CW. HST's together, they are small so it takes a lot of them to make a quilt. The design I am using with the number of blocks I have currently, would be too oblong so it looks as if I need to make at least another 150 of these little blocks to widen the quilt to better proportions.
Fortunately I have "triangles on a roll", I think Meredith gave me these, left over from one of her projects. They make HST's so much faster, easier and more accurate, just sew on the lines, cut and press! I do love these little blocks especially with CW fabrics so it isn't too much of a chore to make more of them.
There's a quilt on the LA that I hope to get done later today, and tomorrow is group "sew day", I think Meredith may come, and perhaps BJ.
I just realized yesterday that somehow I missed the Craftsy BOM for both September and October, one is a curved piecing project the other the Friendship Circle block pattern. I need to catch up on those, probably tomorrow then perhaps some more of the CW. HST's.
