Because I love sampler quilts and have a few more sampler quilts that I would love to finish before Barbara Brackman or another quilt designer offers us another sampler project I can't refuse!
I started this quilt in 2011 as a 2 colour blue and white quilt and almost bailed on it because I was bored. But I found some great brown fabrics in Vermont that breathed some new life into the blocks and I was hooked again.
Today this project is a pile of blocks. I hope to get them into a finished quilt top by the end of the month/year.
Is it doable?!?
I have all the fabric I need, including some unique Civil War specialty fabrics that I have found over the years.
Look at these historic reproduction fabrics...
they are going to be part of the backing.
