First Start of the Year?

Oh dear.
A new project is coming on.
It's a Barbara Brackman historical project, and it's called Westering Women
I'm in. 
Was there ever a doubt about my ability to resist this one?!? Don't even mention that I haven't finished the Votes for Women quilt. In my own defence, I must mention that I did complete my Civil War quilt! 
I'm digging through my reproduction stash to see what colour ranges I'm missing. I have one week to sort myself out before the first block is posted.
Are you heading west with the rest of us quiltin' ladies?!?

  1. You bet I am. I finished the Votes for women quilt and gifted it to my daughter but I haven't finished the Austen family album but hay what's another start between friends. I don't have any reproduction stash but I am going away this weekend and it involves visits to two of my favourite quilt shops so that will resolve that problem.

  2. I am waiting to see what Barbara B.'s quilt looks like - I assume there is a photo - or well she be just posting the blocks one at a time and see it all at the end? I have a lot of fabric to use up :) don't we all - so it might be a way to get rid of some of it.

  5. I'll enjoy watching you have fun playing with this one :). New starts are so much fun! For me, it's the closest I get these days to how I felt as a child playing a new game or starting a new jigsaw puzzle. Enjoy!!!

  6. Enjoy Kathy! I am sitting this one out this year as I just finished Barbara's Stars In a Time Warp QAL in 2015. But this looks really interesting and I will be following Barbara's posts and everyone's progress on this one. Look forward to seeing your work!

  7. Oh dear, I knew I shouldn’t have clicked on that link! How hard can it be to do one block a month? I love all her history that she tells along with the blocks she does. i just might have to join this one.

  9. Still sitting on the fence. One block a month might be ok until I look at all my ufos.

  10. I'm watching to see her blocks and read the history that she shares. I have plenty of CW fabrics to make blocks if I decide to join in.

  12. Quilting along with Barbara Brackman is like a college level history class, imo. As a history lover, I'm definitely in! I'm looking my stash over as well.
