I seem to have quite a few fabrics that tend to be overlooked whenever Im working on a project. Obviously when I brought them I liked them, yet they just seem to get left behind. In an attempt to try and make a dent in this part of my stash, Im using them for Modas Vintage Reserve Pattern:
Im aiming to sew one a day and have completed 8 of the required 32, plus there are heaps of Flying Geese units in the borders. I trying not to think too hard with this one, just use up the fabrics and hope for a good result!!!
It will make a great quilt to throw on the couch in the studio, for those cold nights when the kids come down to read to me or do homework or just have a chat.
I have finally relented and brought my own copy of the Civil War Diary Quilt after seeing so many wonderful blocks in blogland. Im not sure if I will ever make the quilt, I am far more intrigued with the diary entries of these 10 amazing women. Ive always had a fascination with that period of history since seeing Gone With The Wind when I was 10. Even today it remains my favorite all time movie!!........maybe Ill just try a few blocks!!
