Okay...I admit that my sewing room is a mess and I can't remember what I was working on before the big anniversary party, so I am starting something new!
Julie is hosting a 9 patch block swap and I couldn't miss out on this fun, so I signed up. We are to use 1800's reproduction fabrics and this made it even more appealing for me since I was planning to make a reproduction quilt in honour of a little trip that my husband organized this past spring.
He took my father and my son to Gettysburg this year and they had a once-in-a-lifetime experience learning about the history there. I hope my son especially will always treasure his memories of this special adventure. He took a lot of great photographs and this is one of them.
These are the fabrics that I bought specifically for this quilt.
I am cutting off the selvages to keep of course and have started to work on 9 patch production...6" blocks and 3" blocks. I have to make more 6" blocks for the exchange, but I enjoy making the 3" blocks more!!!
I know it doesn't look like much so far, but just you wait...this project is just getting started!
