And to think, I have this all to blame on my aussie friend!!

Hunt has begun

I am going to be starting the new BOM by Beth Ferrier. By the time I decided to do this quilt, the kits were gone. So, off to the local quilt shop to see if I can find some fabric.

Quilting suggestions needed

I want to start hand quilting this quilt, It is called a "Carpenters Square" I found the pattern on some very old yellow paper that was in a trunk of my grandmothers. Each block was 24 inches square and it took 72 pins in each row just to keep from loosing the points.

Churn Dash Quilt

This is the latest quilt top that I've finished. The center is made with 3 inch blocks. The set of blocks are 6 inch, then 9 inch and the outside is made using 12 inch blocks. The plan is to hand quilt it, lol we'll see, for how it goes on the stack with the rest.

Here are some photos that I took at the Lancaster quilt show.
