My book and CD has arrived - this project will start in October led by Rosemary Youngs, an award-winning quilter and designer, and author of this book. Rosemary has also written The Civil War Diary Quilt and The Amish Circle Quilt.
I have made a promise to myself that I will keep up with this project. Often I fall by the wayside as I'm so involved with other things ... anyone else who does this? It is a really lovely quilt with so many interesting stories behind each block - I intend doing only so many blocks and putting them around a medallion in the middle.
The background fabric here is a beautiful orangey-red paisley made for The-Virginia-Quilt-Museum. I bought it when I was in Houston last November. It was very inexpensive to my way of thinking and sold as a backing, so I think I have 4 yards of it.
There are approximately 28 Australian girls in our Squilters Repro Swap - I wonder how many will be doing the CWLL quilt? We are all looking forward to our little parcels arriving later in the month. Prue will be busy - but what a way to be busy - sorting through stacks of beautiful fat eighths!
It is a very cold morning here today and at the moment we have bright sunshine - must get on to other things, so have lovely day everyone!
