Last night was quiet and I fell asleep before midnight for the first time in decades. Oh no! I guess being wrapped in quilts, watching movies, and Prosecco will do that. I think it was around 11 or 11:30 oh well.
June. Here is the photo from June of some of the blocks. Time to dig this project out.
Another exciting (well for quilters anyway--the term exciting is relative ya know) happening today is the announcement that Barbara Brackman is posting a block of the week commemorating the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War on her new blog. She is posting history, historical photos, and a block each week. I hope some of you will join me in making this quilt! Or at least follow along to enjoy the stories and photos. I'm a big fan of hers because of her dedication to researching quilt and social history. Besides sesquicentennial is just fun to say.
And thirdly, I am excited because Bonnie Hunter posted Step 7 yesterday of her RRCB mystery and I LOVE this quilt! It is worth all the gazillion of little pieces. I started putting some blocks together (even thought I haven't completed all the previous steps) and will post some photos soon.
OK I'm excited, at least for today right now 1-1-11 (that's fun to type), and I'm headed to the sewing machine.
