    No, this is not one of MY creations, but something my Aunt is making for me. Isn't it FANTASTIC? :) She sent me this pic last night to show me the first block of my new reproduction Civil War Quilt that she has in the works for me. And yes, this quilt will make an appearance with me at events. :)

    My Aunt Sue has graciously offered to make me a Civil War Reproduction Quilt...on her 1889 Treadle Singer Machine. How Cool is that?!? Of course I shall be reimbursing her for costs, etc. So I finally settled on a Antique Star pattern and a theme of browns & reds (possibly with blue accents :) and the project is finally in "GO mode". YAY! Here's a pic she sent me of the first block (of 124) with her 1889 Treadle machine. Isn't it GREAT!! I'm so excited to see the final Quilt. YAY!!! :)
