This is Order Number 11 of Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Quilt block of the week #40.  That means there are only 12 more weeks to go!

Order No. 11

It is the picture that is askew, not the block.  It is machine appliqued using the raw-edge method.

Yesterday I was alone watching the Texas Rangers play the Tampa Bay Rays, except for my trusty buddy Rowdy Ranger, while my Sweetie was at work.  This is how Ranger watched the Rangers, except when I was whooping and hollering after Kinsler or Beltre hit a home run.

Then Rowdy Ranger would run like a “scalded” cat to the back part of the house until he felt it was safe to come back, only to be startled awake again by my enthusiasm.  I couldn’t help myself.

They now play the NY Yankees or the Detroit Tigers, depending on which team wins their playoff in the next few days.  However, it doesn’t matter which team the Rangers play next.  The Texas Rangers will win either way!!!!!  More time for hand quilting.

a Signature


  1. Rowdy Ranger doesn't look so rowdy, but I'm sure he/she was excited in his/her own way. Go Rangers!!!!! They really are a different team since Nolan took over.


Hey, leave me a comment so I know that I'm not talking to just myself!
