I always have to have a piecing project going especially when I am doing a lot of applique like I am right now, this is the one I am working on now
Its a reproduction of an antique quilt in the book For Purpose or Pleasure by Sandi Fox. A must have if you love antique quilts, actually any book by Sandi Fox in mho.
I opened the book to this page when a friend, mary jo known as MJ from MI in blogland no blog just comments!, told me she wanted to make this quilt. Of course I already had a sticky on that page as a someday project.
Someday happened last week, I instantly started pulling fabrics and made a pile! I decided to make my blocks smaller then the original antique quilt. My blocks will be 6" finished vs. 9" like the original. It didn't hurt that the block was a nine patch and I just bought new turkey reds I was dying to use! It was the right time for me to make this quilt too! Besides whats better then turkey red, poison green and cheddars?????
Here is the book cover...
Did you see Sarah is having a 100 post giveaway????? Oh how I would love to have those liberty fabrics!
