I have a quilt on the frame. I have a quilt that needs its outer border quilted (I am doing it on my Bernina-which is in the shop for cleaning and updates). I have a binding to put on another quilt. So why am I itching to start something new??
I bought this book a couple of years ago. That was when I started collecting reproduction fabrics in earnest.
Barbara Brackman has started a blog to celebrate the sesquicentennial of the Civil War. She is sharing one block each week. You can see her blocks here.
I was going to follow along with her using her fabrics (in fact I was all ready to order them) but today I decided to use the above book and my own fabrics. See-I can use what I already have!
I know-should I really start another project? There are 121 blocks in the book. I made the first two today (will post tomorrow). I figure that I have 4 years to finish the quilt, right?
Are you starting or making a civil war quilt this year?
