This is another online project I'm doing - see my first posting here . I don't treat this one with quite the same urgency that Grandmothers Choice gets.
That said, the little pile of fabric is growing and I am enjoying working with a color selection that I do not often use. Although the patterns given on the Civil War blog posts are for 8" or 12" blocks I am making mine in a 6" size.
Imagine my surprise and delight when I found that Ms Brackman had shown my month 1 block on her Material Culture blog this week. If you are not familiar with that go see this entry. The fabric I used for the feature cross in that block is from a small collection named Quilts of Florence Peto the flower pot series by Froncie Quinn for Newcastle Fabrics.
Ooh, now I better go read today's posting on Material culture as it is National Pi day - for those of you without a math focused family member today is March 14 or 3.14 which is the "magic" number to use in calculating circle dimensions. The post is all about circular quilt blocks and more. My geek son has a geeky friend with a birthday today which always made having pizza on that day an easy choice - round and a pie!
But seriously, what I better do is get started on packing up projects and fabric as I am going on my guild retreat weekend tomorrow morning.
