It’s a brand new year and thanks to Kathy, my wonderful sister, I have a brand new quilting project. For my birthday she gave me a new pattern for a beautiful quilt. She and I are both planning to make this quilt during 2009. We hope to make it as near like the picture as we can. If you click on the picture, you can see it in a larger size. The pattern is called “Vintage Moments”, by Marsha McCloskey. The picture is one that my sister found on the internet. I don’t know who made it, but we fell in love with it when we saw it. I hope I am not too old to learn some new tricks. This quilt requires doing some things I haven’t tried before. Bias strip piecing for making half- square triangles? We are going to do it one step at a time and see how it goes. Maybe this new project will give me more incentive to take pictures and blog about my progress. If I am going to get this done in 2009, I had better get off the computer and get busy! Hope you all have a great new year filled with happy days of quilting and crafting.
