I have been a quilter for a very long time and in the past many months have contemplated joining with the multitude of quilters worldwide who have their very own blog.
My thinking is to post photos of and words about : ideas for projects, blocks I make, quilt tops in progress, or even - gasp - finish, links to other quilting sites, quilt books I read, events in my quilting world both near and far...or whatever I think fits my header.
The impetus to do this was my invitation to my international round robin friends to join with me in making the Civil War blocks as posted on quilt historian Barbara Brackman's blog
Surprisingly, several of my robin friends are going to join with me in making a block a week. I'm going to post photos here of my blocks and I hope they will come visit. Perhaps there will be other readers who are also following along with this year long project, find this blog and add in their comments.
But, I hasten to add, I don't want to limit this to only the Civil War blocks. Let the cuttings fall where they may and may all scraps be useful!
Kia Ora to each and every one of you!
