Can you believe I just sat there and thought for ages, and that was the best title I could come up with? Pathetic.
I didn't get a chance to do much sewing today. I did the first step of a mystery quilt my quilting group is hosting, but unless you want to see a pile of blue half square triangles, there's not much to show for that. I'm just about to go and cut up a whole swag of wadding pieces for a strip quilt, but again - there's not much to show there. So I'm fiddled about in my photo archives to find something to post...and this is it:
I didn't actually make this quilt, it was one my mother did. But it was the first time I looked at civil war fabrics and thought 'Oh yes, that's what I want to do'. I'd always been keen on 1930's fabrics, and have a huge amount of those in the cupboard. I guess it was an easy jump to civil war stuff. I have too much now, I'll never use it all. But I do love it.
Well, best go and cut wadding squares. Hubby is watching his beloved footy team getting flogged. I might leave him to it.
