I am loving this new book -
A Path to the Civil War:
Aurelia's Journey Quilt.
Have you gals seen this book?
So full of history and information.
I love the history part
of the book as much as the quilt blocks.
And as much as I love the colors!
The colors are to gush over!
(hear me color gushing?!)
I'm hoping to have the top made by
April 12th, 2011 -
this date marks the
150th anniversary of
the start of the Civil War.
The book has 28- twelve inch blocks
and 16- nine inch blocks.
There are about 12 weeks between now and the 12th of April...
that's only 4.5 blocks a week for 10 weeks,
and two weeks for sashing and borders.
Sounds do-able, don't you think?
Are you in???
Let me know if you are going to work on this quilt, also.
(I'm thinking I may have a giveaway
of some of the Marcus fabrics that were used in making this quilt.)
