You may have noticed Connie's blocks over the past year...
Masterful fussy cutting of William Morris reproductions...
in a lovely madder and indigo color scheme.
No matter what I threw at her she had a solution.
She set 49 blocks in the same set Becky used for
the Civil War Sampler last year.
Somebody suggested we need to have a quilt show.
That would be terrific but until we can figure out
how to pay for all that international shipping,
the virtual show will have to do.
And do quite nicely.
Go to our Flickr page where Dustin keeps things going.
I noticed today that we have over 300 members
who have posted about 4,000 photos.
Now that's a quilt show!
I've been lurking around the site, uploading some finished tops.
Squaring them up a little
By Barbara B (another one, not me!)
74" square with narrow sashing.
(She didn't like her block 48 so she invented her own).
I'll have to think on that. Some imagery from the posters, buttons and graphics perhaps?
Pink Deenster has been using a fresh color scheme of turquoise and black
and red with lots of plaids and pattern.
Here's her set.
Pati did a second set in red, white and blue for a See How We Sew post.
You are all so inspirational I am going to have to think of another sampler.
Becky and I are planning a 2014 block of the month for the Civil War Quilts site beginning in January
but a block of the week is too much fun!
I'll think about it - history and patterns.
I enjoy writing it and love seeing the results.
