Thanks to my blogfriend Lizzie I already am a member of the blog.
I am talking about the Civil War Bride Quilt. Corliss Searcey of Threadbear in Australie made a pattern of the original quilt that is hanging in the American Folk Art Museum in New York.
This great quilt is only applique and because I do not have a lot of experience in applique, I bought this small applique pattern by Lori Smith: songs of spring, to make first....;
And I started today an applique pattern by Yoko Saito.
In the last number of Quiltmania was the first block of a Quilt Mystery.
I asked her if she could make me a kit for this block. I have met her on the Craft fair in Rotterdam last year. She has an enormous variety of woven Japanese fabric. So she made me a beautiful kit. The next block will be in the next Quiltmania in march.....
And of course I want to make a lot of doll/small quilts this year. there are two quilts that are waiting to be finished. I 'll show them this week with another , so cute, knitting project.
keep in touch and happy crafting!
