Austen Family Album Quilt - Blocks 12 and 13 Done

We were on vacation last Sunday so I was a little behind but got two blocks done tonight.

Block #12 is Waves of the Sea for Francis Austen another of Jane's brothers. He was very successful in the military and actually became an Admiral and was Knighted. 

Continuing the use of blue fabrics and tried to use as many different ones as possible.

Block #13 is Crosses & Losses for Charles Austen - yet another brother of Jane's.  Charles also was in the military and became a Rear Admiral (not sure what the difference is between an Admiral and a Rear Admiral). 

More blue fabrics used for this block. I am starting to see a decrease in the blue fabric box but am keeping out the fabrics I use to keep from duplicating them - at least for now.  

May try to use the fabrics again in either the sashing, borders and/or the binding.  

This is now 13 done out of 36 so we are 1/3 done!!
