CCCQ Block #4 'Nancy Smith'

This week I have finished Block #4 for my Chester County Criswell Quilt with a little help from Metro Trains and a bat with malfunctioning sonar. I usually get the bus to work but last Wednesday hubby convinced me to catch the train instead. What would normally be a 40 minute journey turned into 2 and a half hours! Would you believe that apparently a bat flew into the power-lines and caused mayhem to the signals. Luckily I had my sewing with me which kept me sane as we sat between stations not even knowing what was going on but I managed to make a lot of progress on the 'Nancy Smith' block.

I was completely cheesed off at the time and I won't be in a hurry to get the train again but as the saying goes, every cloud has a silver lining and this block does rather look like a cloud. 


  1. I wish I could needle turn like you. Beautiful job and I like your fabric choice.

  2. What a story! You sure made good use of your time. What a (mental) lifesaver of having your handwork with you! The fabric is very fun and makes the block even more interesting and "cloud-like" as your said :)

  3. No time wasted when you have sewing around is there?! that block is truly stunning - wonderful fabric choice and design!

  4. I love your green Nancy Smith block! Beautiful fabric choice.

  5. Your block is gorgeous. The fabric is perfect.

  6. It's a neat block, just the sort I love to stitch.I tried stitching on the train once but it as too bumpy for me.
